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.

    Very very awesome. Loving it.

    Spent half a year in Nairobi and heard Benga in every dodgy little hotel or bar I visited. This music reminds me of the dancing mamas and thirsty men I encountered on happy Sunday afternoons in Dagoreti.
