WHAT THE COVER LOOKS LIKE:
Kenyan Musician Alai K. returns to his ‘Disco Vumbi’ moniker for this album, following releases on the acclaimed Nyege Nyege and Hakuna Kulala labels of Kampala. RA pitches him as one of their 15 East African artists you need to hear, noting “his exuberant music calls to mind the outdoor parties of 1970s Kenya from which people would return home covered in dust kicked up by furious dancing.” This album takes inspiration from different genres in music, transporting you to Benga Electro Tribal Dast of East African music. The beat is irresistible - if you are standing or sitting part of your body will dance. And if you understand Kiswahili you will enjoy the stories of Magongo, where Alai grew up.
