Extra Golden

Extra Golden’s members are natives of the United States and Kenya. Their debut, Ok-Oyot System was released to wide acclaim in 2006. They released Hera Ma Nono after recording in 2007 and Thank You Very Quickly in 2009. The records blend the buoyant, bouncy sounds of benga, a genre of Kenyan music that features African guitar stylings and American-style rock ‘n roll, with bilingual lyrics.
