He went to Zaiko on his own. Just before the release of Loi. Because he was angry that Motingia Tunga joined Quartier Latin. Which made them having 4 Bass players (Binda, Pathy, him and Montigia). Willy Bula joined Zaiko went they left him for that short Europe tour in the sumner of 1997, for the recordings of Loi.

He waited for QL in Kinshasa, but then Koffi left him again behind in Kinshasa. And then decided to join Academia. I guess that Koffi taught that he would stay in Europe, if he would bring him. Since that Pathy Bass stayed in 1999 and Silawuka Nguma in 2000, who were both reserve bass-players.

Wow didn't knew that Blaise Bamba (the keyboard-player) was a member of Academia. Blaise was a member of Quartier Latin during the days of Magie and Noblesse Oblige. He went then to Defao where he played on Sala Noki, Copinage, Tremblement de Terre, Bana Congo vol. 1 & 2 & Guerre de 100 Ans.

Did he participated to Viagra ? And when did he returned to Quartier Latin ?

I always thought Willy Bula left in January 1997 when he learn he would not tour.

No. Viagra was played by Pathy Bass and Silawuka Bass. It was recorded when Academia came with the new recruited musicians to Europe (end of 2000 until the spring of 2001). Blanchard joined after that Koffi left him behind for the of Zenith 2001. Blanchard only played on 4 Coins Kandala. I guess that he stayed during the last tour of Academia in europe Then rejoined Quartier Latin in 2003, when all musicians didn't believe that Sam would return to Kinshasa. Which made Academia collapse. With Tshe-Tshe le Balle, Tonton Lay, Mbetenge Domingo and Blanchard goining to Quartier Latin and the rest going to trying their luck in BCBG & Maison Mere (Eric Menthe, Musika-sika, etc.). I don't know what happend between 2003 and 2005 with him. He got the chance to play some bass on songs of Bord Ezanga Kombo, where they credited him. But he was still in the shadow of Binda Bass. He got finally the chance to get the number one spot, when Binda Bass decided to settle in France. He played then on Abacadabra (both generics Jeune Pato & On est Ensemble), Cindy's album, 13eme Aporte and Nyataquance. Listen the way the bass-guitar is played on all generics of those album.He is a monster.

One of my favorite baselines ever on a generique was the one Blanchard played on Etage Ya Suka, so effortless like he was playing an imporvised bass solo parallel to the guitar solo. It helped make that suspense you felt as you listened.

I still don't understand Koffi prefered Binda Bass above him after V12 and later also Pathy. Was there problem between both guys ? His work on Pas de Faux was epic.
