Sal Davis: Makini (Fly Records 1969)


Pressed in Belgium for export to Kenya. This Afro Mod / Jazz / R&B mongrel features bi-lingual vocals from Tanzanian Sal Davis. The sound is gritty, near on filthy and tough to resist. This 45 has been recently re-issued by counterpoint on a limited run. (Thanks ‘A’ for bringing this one home.)

  • My name is Makini Davis and I was super excited to find this song and more so the artist also has my last name! Wish I could meet the man behind the song!
