The junction of Tom Mboya and Ronald Ngala streets in Nairobi is infamous for congestion caused by matatus. Melodica Music Stores stands out from the rest of the shops. It captures one’s attention with sweet sounds wafting above the din.
The library shelves teem with evergreen tunes, including traditional tunes of the Orutu, Nyatiti, and Eshikuti. The shop also sells Music Equipment including guitars, tumbas, drums and tambourines.
To ensure a variety , what was not produced in Melodica’s studios is brought in from other producers as long as they fall in the zilizopendwa category.
