Kiekie bro settle down, we have a long way to go before Congolese music is back. I think the album is good, but it feels like I’m listening to old man music, as it’s what it geared to, naturally

Man but this is the right formula the new guys are missing a lot of what makes Congolese music Congolese. I loved Fabregas “ cible “ at least vol 1 but man sebenes are needed.

Honestly that's what I love about Zaïko, they stick to their sound! And it has a really nice nostalgic feel to it! I'm not really a fan of today's music as of much, I'm more of an 80s-2000s kind of listener! The song Yaka M. (Track 2) is a new favourite of mine. The fact that the group are all singing in ensemble, reminds me of the song "Temps Mort" by Franco & OK Jazz! I love the rhythm guitar that's panned to the left ear and the saxophone is just fantastic! Wow. This is proof that Congolese music hasn't completely died out!

Right now I’m 3 songs in and nakomela malembe ;D while taking it all in.  There’s a reason why these guys are the GREATEST Congolese band alive. The album has good lyrical content, explosive sebenes (nostalgic Zaïko), sweet harmonies and their rumbas are filling a void left by Simaro. Well worth the wait.

The difference between Zaiko and other older artists is that they still have the ability to influence culture. We see where the music is going now and every time that happens we have a group like Zaïko who reminds us who we are. The irony is, when you think of it, Zaiko is L’Aurhenticité exerting the same influence Mobutu did with nationalistic pride just in art form. That’s not a bad thing.

I totally agree with you on that! Period! For every sebene that comes up, I feel like one of them big bellied uncles dancing with an old man cap on with a can of Stella in my hand hahaha! (I'm only 21 years old!) the best rumba for me is Yaka M.

What people forget about Zaïko is that they're one of the most prolific bands in Congo which ended up making the industry for what it is! Despite other bands like OK Jazz.
Have a look at what I mean

ZAÏKO LANGA LANGA- (Clan Langa Langa)
                   |
        Isifi Lokole
                   |---¦
                       ¦
 Choc Stars ---- Viva La Musica
            ¦                           ¦
  Anti-Choc.                   ¦
          Victoria Eleison------- Quartier Latin
                                                     ¦
       Quartier Latin Academia - - - - - - F'Victeam
 
It's not the entire family tree I know but this is just a demonstration (and from Viva/Victoria we have Wenge Musica to WMMM and Bcbg)

I'm saying that Zaïko has been the root of Congolese music (not entirely) but in the case of band evolution, it started with Zaïko!

The Generique are excellent. I really like how they isntrumentalized a KiKongo song which is like our Natiomal Anthem (I am a MuKongo) Ngiele Ngiele MunzilaKongo and how they tried to put more elements of KiKongo with the revisitatuon of the very famous KiKomgo song Ya Mbala it is a somg tht 90%of BaKongo artists take inspiration/revisit.

wait a minute,isnt it de jeannot ngiringongi(who did animation on ponderation 8 and later with madilu) who is in that album as third atalaku
i like the way ya jossart allowed vaugerard lola and akouda to do shoutouts and the way himself did some animtion aswell
much respect to doudou adoula,the guy is completing his 31st year as an active atalaku,i doubt genta and eclipse who are the closest with their 20 and 18 years will reach that mark,absolute legend

It seems good. But this is not Zaiko, this is Ya Jossart's band.

Zaiko Langa Langa died either in 1989 or in 1997.

Couple of mysteries that I’m wondering about. Does anyone know if Malage De Lugendo provided additional backing vocals on this album? Also, Zola Tempo, I haven’t heard from them since Bana OK’s 2004 double CD release Bula Ntulu/Proces. Has any other Congolese artist used them in the last decade?

Haha Jossart is Zaiko but for real tho, I feel after the departure or Meridjo and Oncle Bapius Zaiko in the mid 90´s changed something

Jeannot Ngidingongi only animated for Madilu and Flash Musica. The guy who animated on Ponderation 8 was Dejeanot Nsangu (creator of the Mandundu-cri) who used to be with Shora Mbemba in Super Choc.

I’m officially in love with this album. And I really love the element of surprise because I thought the band was done artistically

Notable songs for me - Yaka M., Asseya Ngwasuma, Alita Wanyi, Lutonzol, Bilan Negatif, Amour Pluriel, Juventus
