DESCRIPTION
 

Celestial Being visited Nairobi at the end of August and beginning of September 2012 where he worked with local musicians to create celestial music. Kenge Kenge brought Cow horns and hand made drums and were joined by local folk singers Olith, who had come to Nairobi through making music with King Kong and Irungu with his father who has since passed.

When asked what the Kenge Groove sounded like, the receptionist Prisca said "It's like the Angel is Coming" before proceeding to provide additional vocals for all three tracks. Nairobi Story tells of an ancient village story passed down as a folk song to the present generation. Celestial Being kept forgetting whether Olith was male or female and ending up making a song with him called "all woman". This is currently a vinyl only release
