musical link: Bilenge Musica du Zaire & Mombasa
Sutff is happening and my days are now much shorter than they used to be thanks to new professional responsibilites that come with a new schedule. I may have to go on hiatus once again briefly while I try to figure out how I can keep this going. In the meantime, I will have to keep things brief.
You all know me by now, when all else fails, I try rumba.
Bilenge Musica Du Zaire – Wazazi Wangu.mp3
Second track for today is from the 70’s – I know nothing about the group apart but from the fact that this track is delicious.
You know what I would really really like? I would love to get my hand on a track named “You can do it” from East African recorded some time in the late 70s or early 80s. I think that it may have been performed by a group that Abdul Haq (whom for a long long time held the fort on KBC General Service in the evening) was in. That great oracle that I always turn to in times of need, Google, brings me nothing: does anyone know anything about the track that I am thinking of?
Mombasa – African Hustle
And yes Jeff, you had the only guess (which was also correct!), do you want to send your requests in? The mega-post might have to wait for a bit.

In other news, it seems that I may have jumped the gun. After a two month silence, Materazzi has finally come out with the facts.
