  • Description

    Item notes : Wachsmann's original recording no.: 54.51. Item notes : From available documentation: the English translation of the song lyrics are "Kampala is far, we started in the early morning, to get a transport. People weep for you, you are far, Kampala; Kampala is becoming like London and Nairobi is also becoming like London. That Sali whom I have talked of, the father of the son, may take him to school, the owner of the son may take him to Mwiri".
