Peter Tsotsi

Peter Tsotsi is a Kenyan musician. He was one of the founders of the Equator Sound Band, along with Adolf Banyoro, Nashil Pichen, Charles Ssongo, Gabriel Omolo, Daudi Kabaka, and Fadhili Williams Mdawida. The group had many swahili language hits in the 1960s in Africa, including "Ewe Malaika", "Zailai Zailai", "Taxi Driver", "Jifunze mengi Dunia", "Pete ni Alama", "Unavyosema", and "Wewe Jane".

Along with Pichen, Tsotsi is recognized as one of the major contributors to the "twist" style of African popular music in the 1960s, modeled on earlier "kwela" music. [ [http://www.afromix.org/html/musique/pays/kenya/index.en.html Music of Kenya] . Accessed November 17, 2007.]
