Feeling the Earth Move: The Earthquake Jazz Band and "Blasio Onyango"

Our random tune for today is by the Earthquake Jazz Band, who we believe is from Kenya but we can't find any information on them. The tune is called Blasio Onyango, and is from the compilation CD Urgent Jumping! East African Musiki Wa Dansi Classics (2016). East African music has long been overlooked because of the more famous music coming out of West Africa (highlife music and the like) but this song shows that East African music can hold its own. Enjoy!
