Orchestre D.O. 7 Shirati Jazz – Elizabeth
Editions Jicco 1976

D.O. 7 Shirati Jazz is the band of Daniel Owino Misisani. He was
here on several earlier occasions. His benga is super hot and always
was. This one from 1976 is on Jicco Records, a Nigerian label.
Sparkling guitars, indefinable bass lines and vocals from another
planet make this an awesome listening experience ..

D.O. 7 Shirati Jazz is de band van Daniel Owino Misisani. Hij was
hier al met diverse andere platen. Zijn benga is van ultieme klasse.
Dit album uit 1976 komt op het Nigeriaanse Jicco label. sprankelend
gitaar werk, onnavolgbare baspartijen en buitenaards goede
vokalen maken dit tot een waanzinnige luister ervaring ..

    Ooh what a gem. I only discovered that more Benga was available last week. I am a Zimbabwean and Benga music from Kenya gave us a lot of morale during our liberation war in the 1970s. We were fighting for independence from Britain. We the young boys then, trained in Tanzania and Mozambique. Then we would go back to Zimbabwe and stay in make shitf bases in bushes and mountains as we fought the guerilla war against the Rhodesians. We would play Benga music in the bushes, especially during the nights or soon after staging ambushes or succesful raids on the enemy. Hence, each time brother moos drops a Benga recording, our hearts miss some beats with joy. It reminds us of the good old days during the war. Please Moos, continue dropping more and more, and I would want to meet you if you happen to pass through any Southern African country. We make sure we get all your Benga collections for our pleasure especially on Heroes day every mothn of August.
