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!

A new Zaiko album that's already receiving positive reception? That's my weekend sorted.

Yeah, it’s pretty good. Asseya Ngwasuma is a banger
