Title: THIS PICTURE MAKES ME SHED A TEAR
Post by: Matebu on December 27, 2018, 00:27
Although its great to have any album at you finger tips, I really miss the event of going to a CD shop and picking up the latest or rare albums. It's almost hard to believe now all these albums came out during the period

I was walking in NYC this past weekend and it dawned on me that all the CD/DVD shops are gone. Do music shops still exist for my brothers and sisters in Paris, London, and East Africa?

Good times. Nowadays, there are hardly any music shops in London if I remember well, but there are probably only a few in Paris and Brussels. You can still get the physical CDs online but it will never beat buying one in a shop.

In Paris neither online or outside,
Château Rouge used to have some cd shops where u can buy anything you want but all of those closed, now it’s clearly impossible to find it. Great years of congoleses music are behind us unfortunately

Yes & no. If I want to buy an old notorious big album, or m.jackson, 2 pac, dr dre, eminem, Johnny Hallyday or barry white cd, i can’t find it. The case of congolese music is about the fact that due to combattants, a lot of specialized cd shops closed

Yeah, I think that if there well still concerts that many of those shops have been closed. Because guys like Ams Tresor, etc. would still producers those dvds of big events at Zenith, Olympia, Bercy, etc. with people wanting to buy it. Instead of watching youtube-posted videos who were filmed by Congolese websites (Elengi Ya Congo, Congomikili, etc.). Those shops made already alot of money in 2011 when combattans started to sell those dvds of artists and comedians who supported Kabila for free or just for 1 euro next to the shop. And those so called "fanatics" also being stupid to buy it.
