Extra Golden

Extra Golden is an international effort between two guys from Nairobi and two guys from D.C.: Otieno Jagwasi and Onyango Wuod Omari of Kenya began in a popular benga band called Orchestra Extra Solar Africa, and Washingtonians Ian Eagleson and Alex Minoff are members of the DC-based rock band Golden. A world beat crossover that sounds like electric rumba, Extra Golden is a bi-lingual dance band with serious lyrics, made more powerful in light of last year's passing of Otieno Jagwasi due to complications from HIV. The three remaining members of Extra Golden will perform at Kitchen Distribution on Sunday (Sept. 24) at 8pm. The CD, Ok-Oyot System (Thrill Jockey), was released this year and remains a testament to this unique and innovative project.
