Santuri on Santuri

The first fruits of the Santuri recording sessions held in Kenya last year have been released on vinyl in the UK and Europe via Highlife Recordings / Huntleys and Palmers. The digital release is coming soon, but meanwhile, the 12inch, released as a part of the Highlife World Series, is available at most respectable dance music stores around Europe. The record features  3 tracks – two by the young sensations Sarabi (Fire and Koko’s Vibration) and one by Makadem (Salaam).
