I think its time I started working on the requests since I have not done any since maybe . . . November? So, today’s featured artist is Daudi Kabaka whose music I have had requests for several times.

Daudi Kabaka - Pole Musa Daudi Kabaka – Pole musa (click on the image of a musical note to get the track).

Daudi Kabaka - Harambee Harambee Daudi Kabaka – Harambee Harambee (click on the image of a musical note to get the track).

And for a change from the normal frantic pace of the tracks that I seem to have been posting of late, here is a ballad from Franco himself.

[edit]

Thanks for the comment Mato, the Franco link is now fixed and points to the correct track.

Now that we have that out of the way, back to frantic pace. Here is Lokassa Ya Mbongo, whose music I have posted before with Monica.

Click here for all the other pre-1990 East African music I have posted in the past.

. . . and remember the rules people as well as the fact that all the older tracks disappear in about two weeks like I mentioned last week so get them while you can.

AOB
+ The experts speak: Padmasree Warrior and David Pogue’s takes on Apple’s iPhone list the reasons (espically the fact that it has no keyboard!) why I will be buying a Blackberry instead

+ PTGui: Wow

+ The Polish Invasion: I don’t know what I did to deserve this but thank you Olgierd and Reuben for visiting.

+ Evans Wanyoike

+ Web hosting in Kenya by ISP

+ Kevin Sites goes on Holidays in Hell

Strictly for fun
+ I have posted this before but here it is again: 70s music is all the rage again

+ A gem from one of my new favorite sites

And as a follow up to this

+ David Seruynage talked about Powerpoint and the failures of its users (bad workmen blame the tools, good workmen blame their skills). In my new yet-to-be-named series dealing with tools, workmen and why the bad ones in each set blame members of the other group, I explore presentations done right starting with Le Grand Content: “The road not taken” among other things.

+ Some of the funniest ads I have ever seen that just may be coming to the Super Bowl here and here

+ Get your very own JL421 Badonkadonk Land Cruiser Tank

+ Slipping out of jail

    Hi Steve,
    Thanks again for more great music. Just to let you know, the Franco link opens Daudi Kabaka’s Pole Musa. Must be a mistake.

    If you’re taking requests, how about Mr. Sura Mbaya himself, the great Remmy Ongala?

    Cheers.

    Mato

    I will be posting a couple of Remy tracks soon (when I get my request list ready) but in the meantime, try this link for Remy Ongala tracks that I have posted in the past.

    - Steve

  2. Mato says:

    Thanks. I have Remmy’s albums Mambo and Sema on CD, but not Songs for the Poor Man, which is his best in my opinion. Just a crappy tape recording of it. Kifo is probably his best song. I’m interested in any of his earlier recordings with Orchestra Super Matimila before he was “discovered” by Peter Gabriel and Real World. He’s got to have some old school stuff out there somewhere?

    I will be sure to post something from Songs for the Poor Man for you, I thought that the track that linked to above from the album Mambo was pre-Peter Gabriel . . . am I wrong?

    On a completely unrelated topic, what do you think of Verizon’s FiOS service?
    - Steve

  3. Mato says:

    FiOS is great. But we’re moving in 2 weeks and it’s unavailable in the new location :( So it’s back to DSL. I will never ever not in a million years, never return to Cox cable. Cox is the absolute worst company in the world.

    Daudi & FrancoLM in one post! Haiaaaaaa!

    Nice. Thx for promoting these two fine artists. You know in Embu, they are playing Daudi Kabakas “African twist” every (EVERY!!) evening. Before they start with that 1manguitarshow…

    JKE, thanks for continuing to represent Embu.

    BTW, why don’t you bring a tape recorder with you and capture some one man guitar to post for us?
