1- COUP DE COEUR(JB MPIANA TSHITUKA)

chorus by quado jdl kibens mignon abraham
programmed by guylain tamba and cedric guez with accoustic guitar of tolbert solo
should have been released as a single feat a rapper in mid 2010's,not my favorite of the album but still well executed  6.5/10

2 BISSEBO(JB MPIANA TSHITUKA)
chorus by kibens jdl atshuda rio,guitar by tolbert solo,zygal,kalo bass,keyboard by jeremie and guez,mbonda by zoulou mbonda and drums by seguin
top top top song,i suspect pascal poba to be the real author,beautiful tribute to our mothers,credit to kibens for insisting for it to be released ahead of another song which was more romantic/sensual a solid 9/10 for me


3 HAUT LES MAINS(JB MPIANA TSHITUKA)
chorus by gesan sakoko,jdl,metro and atshuda,vocals by metro with a good imitation of singers from west africa,josky zola,michigan,sakoko atshuda and zulema

chorus by jairzinho of les contremaitre,atshuda,seguin avion de guerre and metro

chorus by metro jdl kibens michigan and sakoko,vocals by metro,michigan,jdl and sakoko

chorus by didi kalombo,kibens,atshuda,metro,rio and jdl vocals by rio,michigan,kibens,jdl

animation by fusee de guerre,pajo and gentamicine

Nice review. Do you have the list of singers for the Vol 1? Like who composed what? I don’t have access to the cds of this only streaming.

Jules Kibens is a faithful solder to JB Mpiana. Jules Kibens is an intelligent and he clearly focuses on music. I hope EMO sees what you said Archos.

Thank you for this summary.

Walukunga is my favorite song with Etat d'urgence and Je connais Fina... I prefer Vol 2 to Vol 1 even if I love to listen to 50ans and Raisonner...
