Ali Akeko of Meketho Band—Olwikho Vol 5
Namulekhwa Pt. 2
Wamama Na Maendeleo
Dunia Ya Mateso
Ali Akeko has a fascinating home life.
Benga music from Western Kenya makes me smile and sway as people keep telling me the summertime dwindles. I for one am carrying the hot months feeling well into September with cut-offs, bare feet and heirloom tomatoes, not to mention airy musical moods like this to combat the heat and humidity.
Special thanks to Schnipper for the new tape deck. My old one finally passed away last weekend.

Another brilliant tape from Mauritania by way of Guelmim, Morocco
Excellent singing and ghostly guitar from Guelmim, Morocco (see also).
Hopefully someone will eventually tell us the name of this group, song titles and/or context.
