Consumer Guide Album. Orchestra Makassy: Agwaya Four sweet male vocalists dominate this clear, buoyant fifteen-man group from Tanzania, who like all Tanzanian musicians have to travel to Kenya to record their pioneering East African variation on ur-Cuban Congolese styles. Salsa-shaped (a mere three drums) and calypso-inflected, their song forms will relieve or perplex listeners whose contact with Afropop begins and ends with Sunny Adé-they're much simpler.

Orchestra Makassy has resurfaced over 20 years later on Legends of East Africa, which features the original Agwaya LP together with a pair of previously unreleased tracks from East African recordings that should be of particular interest to collectors. The soukous carries much of what would be the prototypical guitar-based, peppy, and happy sound, but there's a sophistication to this version of soukous that's sadly lacking in much of the current catalog.
Orchestra Makassy were an East African soukous band of the late 1970s and early 1980s consisting of musicians from Uganda and Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo). In 1975, under the leadership of their principal vocalist Kitenzogu "Mzee" Makassy the group moved from Kampala, Uganda to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania taking up residence at the New Africa Hotel where they were joined by guitarists and singers such as Mose Se Sengo ('Fan Fan') and Remmy Ongala.
