CD Reviews

Kenyan Nostalgic Pop on CD
Matthew Watters | Kell's Restaurant & Bar, Mongouge | 07/07/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This excellent album is long overdue. LES WANYIKA are one of Kenya's great musical treasures, and at last we can enjoy a whole CD of their soulful songs. The bands new recording of the classic SINA MAKOSSA alone is enough to make the recording worth buying. Listen to the interweaving of guitar riffs, the trade off between the rhythm and lead guitarists, that forms the heart of so many great African sessions. This is music to remind the initiated of the soul of Kenya in the 70's/80's, or to introduce the uninitiated to this joyful period. (Also check the cd KENYA DANCE MANIA for an original recording of SINA MAKOSSA)"

"This compostion of Les Wanyika is incredible.Anybody who's a solid fun of this group from it's humble beginnings until the release of this collection will agree with me that it reflects how talented they truly are.It's entertainment at it's level best.However,the only regret is leaving out the track "shida" out of this meaningful collection.
This is one cd any true and avid fun of this group wants to keep for it revives your spirits of the 70's and early 80's."
