Opiyo Bilongo & Extra Golden - When I Was in U.S. (2008)
This is probably my favourite album of 2008 so far. Extra Golden is a half kenyan half american band. Their music is primarily based in the ´benga´ genre.
It is an online only release, go and buy it instantly for a couple of bucks from kanyokanyo.com
If you like it, get "Hera ma nono" (2007) too, which also features Bilongo. Extra Golden is a great band no doubt, and with Bilongo it is an even greater band - let's hope he can be involved in the future as well!
