THE NDOMBOLO TRENDSETTERS

 
FELLY DIMBEDI MUMBA" TYSON DE BA FORMES"

Felly grows in the quarters of mombele and yolo and starts learning on makeshift guitars trying to imitate his idol beniko popolipo then in zaiko langa langa,then like most musicians continues learning in street groups
he will participate in a competiton for young artists of various areas in the group representing yolo in 1989
one year later,he is spotted by tolin shitokay,close petit of koffi olomide who is on the verge of transforming his quartier latin into a permanent group rather than a group of musicians he calls when needing them and has to cope when some are unavailable
after months of hesitation,with family wanting him to go far at school aswell,felly decides to come to quartier latin for a test
he becomes one of the first members of the quartier latin international who are presented officially and plays in the group first ever album pas de faux pas in 1992
one year later,he welcomes his idol beniko in the group and from his own words becomes a much better guitarist with beniko's advice and coaching
he will then become a pivotal member of the group despite his shyness and tours all around the world with the group and becomes quartier latin's chef d'orchestre from 2000 to 2003(replaced by fally ipupa)
he will leave quartier latin in 2009 and join f-victeam group of fally ipupa 2 years later

MAKAMBO MOTULI "ILE DE CAMBODGE"

born and raised in the area of bandalungwa,and like most of the young men born in 1980's develops his taste for music through wenge musica
while most of his friends prefer being singers,he will discover himself a certain passion for drums as when they are having fun together he plays with makeshift sticks on a piece of wood
few times later in the mid 1990's he will then get occasion to play in some of those street groups who mostly tried to be 'mini-wenge musicas"
he will then play for a short time in fraternité musica with their leader didi kalombo and then new city with the likes of blaise element,fally ipupa,flamme kapaya...
in the late 1990's,he is recruited by gode lofombo in delta force,a group of younger musicians than empire bakuba,he will remain with lofombo after pepe kalle's death untill 2001
in fact,he is approached to join quartier latin as koffi olomide wants a drummer and straight away he impresses so much that he is given majority of songs to play on koffi olomide's album effrakata and participates in zenith of the same year
towards the end of the year he welcomes one of his drumming role models titina in quartier latin,he gets less songs to play but still contributes a good amount and this until 2004 and an american tour where he decides to leave the group
back in kinshasa,he tries to join wenge bcbg but the presence of seguin mignon with who he has a very bad relationship which resulted in both being arrested by police 4 times after fights makes him change his mind,he is approached to join viva and replace the late deo but is reluctant as he "prefers to be in a group with guys of his generation" and finally joins wenge maison mere
but his maison mere experience will end up being totally opposite of quartier latin's as he has to cope with  an untouchable papy kakol,and ends up playing only on some minor ads and in concerts
in 2011,as fally ipupa is looking for a drummer to replace his drummer who disappeared in europe after zenith,cambodge decides to go and does not even need a test
 straight away he starts playing at concerts and in 2015 he releases his first ever song station service in f victeam's group album libre parcours

RICHARD TITINA MBUINGA KAMBOLETA "AL CAPONE LE GRAND CADRE

titina mbuinga was born in 1971 and grows in bandalungwa,he will like many musicians sing at church and at same time learns to play instruments like rythm guitar,mbonda but he will develop a very strong interest for drums,heavily inspired by drummers like belobi meridjo,ilo pablo and also richacha balengola which earns him nickname "petit richacha" at a school called athenee de la gombe
closely followed by his best friend and "benchmate"naty lokole,titina will play in the school's group alongside the likes of willy bula,mimi ciel,laudy mukaba... and he is spotted by jb mpiana who takes him into wenge musica 4X4 to be maradona's backup but titina becomes the group's number 1 as maradona moves to europe and becomes a major member of the group and next to alain makaba learns a lot in terms of arrangement and artistic direction
he  releases one song kama mvuama and remains wenge's only drummer until second half of the 1990's where he requests a reserve drumme and gets one in seguin mignon which he trains hard
when wenge split,he follows jb,makaba and blaise bula in wenge bcbg and once again shines and becomes artistic director when alain makaba leaves
in 2001,he receives a third approach from koffi olomide,and at the same time he is upset with jb about not being allowed to put some of his friend or "ngulu" clients on the huge bercy list as promised,and the fact he invites koffi olomide to his wedding despite very bad relationship between both leaders and group and jb's awareness of koffi's approach makes situation completely worse
he decides to leave after hesitating a lot,but from his own words,feels it was also time to let his understudy seguin show what he learned
he releases a solo album no comment with participation of koffi and straight away he becomes an important member of quartier latin and is the group's artistic director
he leaves the group in 2007 after group album danger de mort,as he is denied authorization to release a solo album
few times later he releases his second solo album affaire a suivre,and until today works on a third solo album and is involved in several albums of various musicians as a session artist

JOE KAPAYA MWENIE " CAPITAINE FLAMME"

Born in 1978 joe kapaya grows in bandalungwa in a family of several musicians and also influence of traditional music as he is the grand son of a traditional chief
he starts following his parents and brothers at church and later becomes a singer and harmonica player,and meanwhile learns guitar at home on a makeshift guitar
when he reaches adolescence,he starts playing in street groups of his neighbourhood in bandal,he will then be in retrouva kawiriko and new city
besides congolese music he also learns a lot of jazz as through elder brothers he is able to play with proper guitars
in 1996 he joins the groups golden tchatcho of duc herode mandiangu where he plays alongisde jordan kusa,bouro mpela,serge mabiala,celeo,serge mabiala...
Then two years later,he joins wenge musica maison mere were he first rotates with japonais maladi on lead and rhythm but looks still a bit raw for the big stage
but he will need just few months to massively improve and completely reaches another dimension in 2001 with album kibuisa mpimpa and becomes the group's artistic director and arranger
from then he becomes a role model to many soloists who try to play his way
in 2007 he leaves as he feels undervalued by his boss who still did not fulfill his promise of years ago to buy him a house
he releases a mini album surprise ebebaka mabe, then participates in a project with cinema director faustin linyekula which gets him involves in musical comedies and concerts in france and several francophone countries
he releases an album banningsville in which he mixes his traditional inspiration,a bit of sebene and foreign influence



to be continued...

You forgot to add that Felly Tyson has had four songs in his carrer Arche de Noé which was in Force de Frappe and then Je T'en Prie which was in Affaire d'Etat and then Martens in Danger de Mort and more recently Fin du Monde in Libre Parcours. Do you know why Felly left Quatier Latin? Didn't Cambodge join QL earlier because he was at Bercy. Cambodge wasted six years of his career at Maison Mere but he's made up for it with Fally. I didn't even know Titina had a solo album before coming to QL.

indeed i did copy and paste wrong i actually mentioned it aswell as sheraton of ultimatum which is credited to him but actually a suzuki song,no it was not only champion at bercy
felly and quadra's relationship was not as good since he was deported and also  he was not receiving messages to come to concerts for weeks,i think there is also something else but its kept secret between them

Suzuki contributed a lot in Quartier Latin. It's strange that he had officialy not a song in Ultimatum, but gave Sheraton and Papa Na Roissy to Nseka & Tyson.
Does Suzuki have more songs in Koffi & Quartier Latin albums who are not officialy credited to his name ? and did Titina already join Quartier Latin when he recored his album 'No Comment' ?

Ahahahaha Ile de Camboge at Bercy...  that's impossible and if Ile de Cambodge joined QL, than would Koffi chose Tshe-Tshe le Ball as Champion "Le Chief" Djikapela's undedrstudy. Because at that time Ile de Cambodge's style wasn't explosive as that from 2001.

Yes he did. The No Comment Album was where I first discovered Bebe Kero. and that album was before Effrakatta. So he (Titina) must have something to do with Koffi "discovering" Bebe Kero.

Archos: Could you please reference a song Cambodge played in QL? I've always thought that Champion Esthatic was QL main drummer b4 Titina Al Capone? Thanks

Champion Djikapela was the main drummer of Quartier Latin since his arrival in 1996 until till his departure in 2001.

 Cambodge played almost every song of Effrakata, expect Bilan, Washington & Ravisse which was played by Champion and that really pissed Champion off, because he as the main drummer and Chef d'Orchestre and that caused the same day when they finished the studio-sessionsa heated conversation between him and Koffi, with as result Champion leaving the studio very angry and contacting Riva Menga the next day to join Wenge BCBG and Titina joining Quartier Latin the same week.

hmmmm No Comment before Effrakata ? Effrakata was released in November/December 2001 and the clips in February 2002 and No Comment came 1 or 2 months later.

I've No Comment I just didn't know it was released before he joined QL I taught it was when he left. So it seems like Koffi let him release a solo album while in QL.

So Cambodge missed out on two critical US-tours, is it poor timing/lack of discipline...

bad timing i think he had a golden opportunity this year to seek long papers and wanted to seize it to be free for the future
his children are still at a certain age which potentially make it easier for him to get it especially as he managed to reunite them in the same house
