Slim Ali & The Hodi Boys
Composed by: Slim Ali
This three-album, ballad-emphasizing compilation CD features the music of one of Kenya’s best selling acts of the late 70s, Slim Ali and The Hodi Boys. The group was inspired by music the soul and funk sound and spirit of the American South, later to include reggae as well as some new innovations in effects and mixing. One reviewer described it all as “spacey Afro boogie”. It was during Slim Ali’s second tenure with the band that they had their biggest hit song, 1977’s “You Can Do It”.
