Design: Fronds of jungle trees frame the label name, which is lettered in a stylized script with a straight underline. The strong black, red and white colour combination is effectively used here.

History: 'Ngoma' is a name for a type of drum used in East Africa. Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
