32 recordings, most of which were only ever released on small-run 45rpm 7" singles, from Kikuyu language "liquid soul", Luo benga, rumba influenced afro-pop, Swahili afrobeat to genre-bending Congolese and Tanzanian tracks recorded in Nairobi.

The tracks featured here from small ensembles and hotel-sponsored bands are peppered with innovation and experimentation, highlighting how diverse the music scene in Kenya was at the time. Rock'n'roll riffs, intricate layers of electric guitar, elements of "afro" music (ala West African), and influences from disco, funk and Swahili coastal rhythms.
