I do not mean that in a figurative sense.
I remember being back in college like it was yesterday. Life was a breeze. I lived from day to day, weekend to weekend, pretending that I was earning a degree in playing pool. I have very few worries. Upcoming CATS, where the next party was at. Stuff like that.
Today, a different set of worries that sets my issues back then in context. Sick kids. Not serious sick but still sick.
So, I shall be brief and get back to my worries.
Hopefully, in a couple of days, I can respond to some of the great comments made over the last 3 weeks and maybe get some conversations going. Maybe catch up with posting at some of the places where I should be posting and even get a jump on big plans for this site.
One thing at a time though.
First, the music.
I have searched all the discographies that I can find but I cannot for the life of me confirm that this track is indeed from Les Wanyika and Prof. Omari.
Can anyone help?
Here is the track Taama Mbaya by Les Wanyika & Prof. Omari methinks.
Next, Samba Mapangala with a track that anyone who went to any school in Kenya will know and love from the 1991 album Feet on fire on the Stern’s catalog.
Finally, a track that I cannot say much about since I am not particularly enamored of it. Although I do not find the music of “Them Mushrooms” to be in the same league as say Franco or even Les Wanyika (whom are the yardstick as far as I am concerned), their brand of “hotel ballroom” music has its fans and it would be a crime to refuse to have their stuff up here since my issues with it are mainly a matter of taste.
So, here is a track based off a traditional Luyha folk song – Mwana wa Mberi

+ Bye bye DRM, hi fair use
+ You KLUTZ!!! You brought on the “The End”
