The Golden Kings Band 76


The Golden Kings Band 76: Hera Thaga / Omiya Jossy (Kenya, Pluto, 1976, 7")

Led by Luo musician Peter Rachino Owino, The Golden Kings Band from Kenya played rumba and typical benga - as it can be heard on this stomping 7" published by Pluto records in 1976. Owino also played in The Golden Ugenya Band also known as The Golden Ugenya Boys. With one or the other of these bands, he recorded for the local Sokota, Apollo, Pluto and Rachar labels (Rachar being run by Owino himself) and for the US based Makossa imprint. Thanks to the helpful Ken Tanza Vinyl website for all the info. This one is for Fabian, who has been waiting for it for quite a long time.
