The song 'Obiero' is from the 1997 compilation album 'African Angels' by the Kenyan musician Ayub Ogada. He was born in Mombasa and is from the Luo ethnic group. Ayub is an accomplished player of the traditional east African stringed instrument, the nyatiti and djembe. In the mid 1980's he relocated to the UK where he played his traditional instruments on the streets busking for money. He was approached by Peter Gabriel and participated in one of the early WOMAD concerts. In 1993 he recorded his first album on Gabriel's Real World label and toured extensively with WOMAD.
