"The Luhya people originate in the Western province of Kenya, but many of them have migrated to large towns, and in particular to Nairobi. Music has always been an essential component of Luhya social life, with a distinct repertoire reserved for each occasion (births, circumcisions, weddings, funerals) or played for sheer entertainment. Playing on typical Luhya instruments, Mzee William Ingosi Mwoshi and his son, Jackson Amusala, are among today's best 'neo-traditionalists' -- a generation of Kenyan musicians who mastered the traditions of the rural areas and were able to transform them for a changing society, so that the old genres would still make sense for people both in the villages and in the towns."
