Kenya

Music

- Jambo Bwana!  Click here
Released in 1982 by Them Mushrooms. The singer of the band was playing at tourist hotels in Kenya & overheard some tourists testing out their Swahili. He wrote a song which went double platinum and is probably the most popular Kenyan pop song in history. It's a testament to the spirit of the Kenyan people that the words are : "Hello Sir, How Are You? I am very fine. In our Kenya, you don't need to worry. Visitors are welcomed."
