Wanyika's Back!



I promised this one a while back, and here it is! Tanzanian/Kenyan superstars Les Wanyika give us another scinitillating slice of Swahili Rumba, 1989's Nimaru (Polydor POLP 598). Nothing much to say about this one, so I'll let the music speak for itself. Enjoy!

Les Wanyika - Nimaru

Les Wanyika - Mama Watoto

Les Wanyika - Mumu Wangu Waniteza

Les Wanyika - Shemeji Agnes

Download Nimaru as a zipped file here.

A critic once told me that in African popular dance music, the rhythm guitar is the cake, the soloist, the icing--was this ever truer than the Omari-Ngereza combo of Les Wanyika?

Always room for another Les Wanyika album. Thanks, John!
