Self-produced and released on Gallo Records in 1977, Saitana’s Jenakuru is a unique and highly sought after African rock artefact. A great admirer of Jimi Hendrix, Saitana was a thrilling performer and mesmerising dancer who created a larger-than-life showman persona. With a moody and acidic edge bleeding into his unique funky sound, Saitana’s sophomore release exposed the darker and introspective side of his seemingly happy-go-lucky personality. Taken from the original reels, Saitana’s resurrection in 2021 is a veritable event for international vinyl culture and music discovery.
