African Music / Re: Help me Identify these tracks

Thank you Paul

I am a bit confused about Les Noirs. I thought there were two groups. One based in Congo and another one in Kenya.
Is this group the one based in Kenya?

At least we are getting closer to the real identity of the tracks.
Most of the tracks are still slightly mistitled because they does not come up on Google search.
I will edit this when I get more info.
Track 1 - Tchiku https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBC99370115208375
Track 2 - Mayaka https://afro7.net/product/orch-les-noirs-mayaka/
Track 3 - Boni Okimi Ngai (Also printed on Pathé 2C 054-81.818 P1975)
Track 4 - (Still Unknown)
Track 5 - Eyebo (Not identified as a song on Google search)
Track 6 - (Still Unknown)
Track 7 - Zoba ya mwasi (Not identified as a song on Google search)
Tracks 8 and 9 - Leontine (Also printed on Pathé 2C 054-81.818 P1975) http://afrodisc.com/central-africa/central-africa-pathe-marconi-emi/central-africa-pathe-81-000-82-000-album-series/
Track 10 - Sekele ce Sekele (Not identified as a song on Google search)

We are half way to identify the songs. I am not sure if this collection is a real album.
It would be fun to identify all the songs :-)

It seems that the address www.africambiance.org is not working well with my antivirus Avast NOD32.

I have this vinyl rip without having the track titles. The only information it has is "Tchiku (melodica CDr)". It would be great if this is a real rip from a compilation. I like detective work but this one is tough :-l
I think some of the groups was diaspora groups in Kenya because of the music style and some Swahili.
Enjoy the tracks while you trying to identify them :-)

I did not know that

the late Bimi Ombale ever performed alongside or in the presence

of such giants as the Late Vicky Longomba et Late Gerard Madiata.

I would give an arm and leg for such indeed a very rare video.

It is, in fact, in colour not black and white.

It's always good to see old-time EA music rescued.
In this case, it's mainly music with a somewhat funky, almost West Africa, sound, less melodic  than that from the great Congolese diaspora bands.

Very good dance music, at any rate.

Urgent Jumping!
East African Musiki Wa Dansi Classics

Drawing on more than 30 years’ experience with African music, the selection and notes are by DJ John Armstrong.
This double album houses 27 East African classics, recorded between 1972 and 1982. Some are super-rare, some are only now finding their way into the DJ boxes of others, but all were popular hits at the time.
From benga and rumba to Afrobeat, and including tracks from Afro 70, Juwata Jazz, Dar International, Earthquake Jazz, Orchestre Grand Piza to name but a few; these classic tracks, all mastered from analogue tape, are the true gems of the boom-time years.
