INDAH’S MUSIC CAREER
He tended to go to nightclubs in the evening after work, more so where Ohangla was playing live around Huruma. Every weekend, he could go to live band clubs and sit next to the stage just to study the performance. The exchange of hands with sticks across and over the drums impressed him most. He could enjoy by nodding his head and demonstrate jovially just as the artists performed their crafts.

Nice songs of Emma Jalamo (who is also his paternal UNCLE) with the voice he longed to adopt, the welcoming band crew inspired him most when he attended their shows more so at Starehe Hotel in Huruma. He could go to the stage and pick up the shakers (Ajawa) and shake, sit by the Drum-sets and play them just to show his interest in music. There and then, he was granted a chance to join Ramogi Ohangla Rhumba (R. O. R) led by Emma Jalamo mainly because of his cooperation, being active and quick whenever he was called upon.
At R. O. R, he was on a mission of being keen, studying, and following every instruction. He wanted to be a Musician, not a shaker or a drumist!
His commitment saw him promoted to be the curtain-raiser and the backup singer to Emma Jalamo. Now, this was it; an opportunity that he couldn’t let go of!
