Viva Makale was formed In 1979 when the Manager of the hottest joint in Nairobi Called Garden Square ( known as Kasuku Armstrong) wanted to fill a void left by the breakup of one of his resident bands known as Orchestre Bwambe Bwambe.
The Manager then asked Bwami Wa Lumona, who was the band leader of his Main resident Band, Les Mangelepa, to get together with another musician known as George Kalombo Mwanza and form a band to fill the gap.
Kalombo Mwanza was a member of a group known as Kombe Kombe and he recruited a number of the group members to form Viva Makale. Viva Makale was then contractd by Kasuku Armstrong to play alongside Les Mangelepa at Garden Square as resident bands.
The founding members of Viva Makale were : George Kalombo Mwanza (Vocals/Sax), Bwami Wa Lumona ( Lead), Leyla (Trumpet), Tshiamusoke ( Trumpet), Coco Zigo"Mike" (Vocals), Tambwe Mandola ( Vocals), and Jimmy Monimambo (Vocals), Chery Matumona (Lead guitar), Siama Matuzungidi (rhythm), Kabeya ( Rythm), Thomy Lomboto (Bass) and Lava 'Machine" ( Drums).
