I have a friend, and when I listened to the early album: Salamalikoum by Sakis, he told me: "Oh, this is from the time when Sakis was still a good boy."

So I titled this post with his definition, to intorduce you the song below. It is Yoka Lolembo. A nice rumba tune that I found on his album: Let's Go to Dance from, 1987, when he might still have been a good boy. I have just managed to get hold of this record. The song is a proper rumba, with very nice guitar parts in the style of Bongo Wende, though it is written it is not him who is playing, that made me surprised anyway, but well... And I like the vocals too. All in all, a very well arranged song with nice melodies.

Indeed; his later "stuff" is just a travesty.

The 80's Paris scene was so vibrant and clean, I get nostalgic when I play just about every good song from that era.

The guitar work on Salamalikoum features great work from Diblo Dibala and bassist Remy Sah'lomon.

His first album is very hard to find, here's a song from it.
