Doug Paterson's Music Projects...

On a 2015 visit to Kenya, George from Jojo Records asked me if I could digitize some master tapes from the Doromy record label. In the end, it turned out to be 37 boxes of tape that produced something on the order of 39 hours of music. On my next visit to Kenya, I returned all his tapes and presented to George a couple of thumb drives with digital copies of all the songs. When djs Johnny and James of No Wahala Sounds contacted me about sourcing some Kenyan music for a new LP, I put them in touch with George. The result is Nairobi Calling!

Various Artists: Nairobi Calling! Selected Recordings 1976-1996 from No Wahala Sounds released 18 August, 2017.
