Super Hits from East Africa – Various Artists
Polydor POLP 062

Four tracks from East African groups on this vague record.
Two by the great Mbaraka Mwinshehe, one with Michelino
Mavatiku Visi and one with Milimani Park Orchestra. Not any
information on the sleeve, a little background hiss. To go short,
the sound quality could have been way better, plenty to wish
for but still worth a few spins I’d say ..

Op deze wat vage oost Afrikaanse plaat vinden we vier nummers.
Twee met de geweldige Mbaraka Mwinshehe, een met Michelino
Mavatiku Visi en een met Milimani Park Orchestra. Geen informatie
op de hoes, wat achtergrond ruis. Kortom, de geluidskwaliteit kan
heel wat beter, de plaat laat genoeg te wensen over, maar toch is
hij het waard enkele keren te beluisteren ..

    Was mavatiku ever based in Nairobi? I can here the influence of Nairobi beats along with Lessa Lassan on vocals.
