Band Sauti Popote 'Adam Na Hawa pt1&2' Ruhia

We haven’t found any information on the label nor the artist here, looks like a private one off. Great label design, is that a horn upside down? The music speaks for itself here, a religious Kikuyu duet with a great slab of horns and funky guitar drive. In tradition of similar sounding Kikuyu groups at the time (Lulus band, Rift Valley bros) the sound on the b-side is nearly all instrumental. Note the funky change-up at 1:35 and wait for the bass solo! This smells of dancefloor potential. Probably from around mid seventies 75 or 76. Enjoy!

  1. We got it confirmed by our connection in Kenya: It’s a wedding song in Swahili, they are literary saying that Marriage is a sacred thing. And the main singer is giving advice to a young couple getting married. Sweet! Our source also tells us the band might be from Tanzania. If anyone else has any information let us know ..

    1. i’m pretty sure this is not sang in Swahili but rather in Kikuyu(i’m a kikuyu myself). and it’s telling of the story of Adam and Eve when they were in the garden, and how the serpent persuaded Eve to partake of the forbidden fruit. i also highly doubt the band might be from Tanzania. their Kikuyu is exceptionally fluent they must be from kenya

  2. I second Mwangi… there is not a word of Swahili here. This is Kikuyu language. Fantastic track!
