Additional Audio from the ‘Music time in Africa’ archive library of Luo folk music. “By a group of young Luo girls, singing a delightful tune about a Woodchopper.” Introduced by radio host Sue Moran, 11th May 1975. Metaphorically speaking, Khadambi Asalache is the woodchopper within the 575 Wandsworth Road narrative, that the Kenyan girls are referring to.
