Extra Golden: “Anyonga”
What do you get when you pair Kenyan folk music with American rock n’ roll? The answer: Extra Golden. Consisting of Ian Eagleson, Alex Minoff and Otieno Jagwasi, the idea forExtra Golden came in 2004 while Eagleson was in Nairobi working on his doctoral dissertation on Kenyan drumming. Eagleson layered his electric guitar with some of the traditional Kenyan benga music and Extra Golden was born. Today’s song of the day comes from Extra Golden’s new album Thank You Very Quickly. From their performance in Studio 1a here is Extra Golden with their song “Anyonga”.
