Senta Lain – Michel Ongaro
Senta Lain are a great band from Kenya who were formed by blind band leader Michel Ongaru 8 years ago.
Michel is a multi-instrumentalist and plays harmonica, guitar, flute, drums, marimba and piano.
Musically the band combine a wide range of influences and cultures which include Kenyan benga and soukous styles with gospel and Cuban Son. Very good. (Graham Radley)
