We @voiceofcongo from IG to translate this one too  :D all my non lingala folks lets make a go fund me to make this shit happen this shit gotta change  ;D :D

So what happened to Bendo Son? Did he sign to Koffi at some point or was I tripping ? And while on the subject of Viva/Nouvelle Ecriture, i had heard Guyguy Fall from Extra went to Viva at some point but was never able to find any songs

Heritier is boring. Fabregas came out with a smash and thats a reason why i had to check out what else he had, the guy seemed really creative. I got tired of Deplic quick surprisingly enough, even tho his buzz when he was with WMMM was craaaaazy. I like Robinio but he seems like he is getting a little cocky. Tsha nanu boye tho  :o

He makes me real proud. In the states people dont know much about congo, Nigeria is the big African country or Somalia in my area. So its nice to see one of ours going hard. I love seeing him on IG uploading videos where’s he’s singing rumbas and loved how he was teaching Keri Hilson how to cook fufu and how to speak lingala. Soon as I seen the vice documentary I sent the link straight to my moms phone. Had her homesick as fuck lol

Im young but i love vimba

I think its really interesting that these guys knew each other since primary school. I wonder how many more guys go back to the sandbox. That musta been fun to go at it as far as competition knowing you actually know guys on the other team since kids. How big is Bandal? Seems like the chateau rouge of Kin or something. Everybody comes from there lol

To me its not a congolese wedding if Aime Nkanu - Ma Plus Belle Fleur doesnt play.  ;D

This is one of those songs my parents played as a kid ALLLLLL the time and as I got older I didnt know the name of it or who sang it and couldnt even ask my parents anything about it because I had no idea where it came from. So glad I stumbled upon it 5-10 years ago. That melody woulda just been stuck in my head forever.

Its 4th of July weekend, you’re chilling with your African American girlfriend or wife and her family and some of their family friends. On the way home they ask you to plug the aux cord and play 2 songs from your country because they wanna know more about your culture. What two songs do you play? Would you play one rumba and then one sebenes? Or would you play something from one generation and then something from another generation? When you get home you decide to then show them one videoclip. What videoclip would you pick?

I understand what you’re saying but  for some reason Koffi 1992-1996 sonically sounds better to my ears than Kalayi Boing, Pleins Feux and I might even add Pentagone in there. A lot of wenge 4x4 songs sound like Pop songs/world music until the sebene part. I wonder if thats Makaba’s fault because i believe he was artistic director of the group or if JB kinda liked those Pop portion of the songs. Because after the split it was barely anymore of that sound, maybe because times had changes but then again maybe Werrason and Adolphe were more purists.

Having a hard time differenciate solo, mi solo and rythmn if somebody could help and point out specific parts or time stamps from specific songs just so I could see the difference between the three. Its very easy to see what a solo is, which is the most important part of the sebene, just having a tough time wrapping my head around mi solo

Yes he combined, and in my personal opinion his sound was better. Wenge had the blueprint, but melodically I never really liked their regular songs that werent sebenes, just a few rumbas. Koffi on the other hand was wayyyy ahead of JB in the rumba department in my opinion and his instrumentalisation was better to me as far as sebenes went. Dont know what the atalakus actually say so I cant jusge on that, but as far as the sound I think Koffi sonically had Wenge beat since Pas de Faux Pas

After reading all this I feel like Beevans should get way more credit. You dont ever hear much about him but to me Magie will always be Koffis best album and V12 is a good album as well but the sebenes on those albums were classics up there with the Lois and Attentats

I always under impression that Koffi at the time dedicated distortion to Lebou & Beniko. And that Beniko played solo and distortion on Andrada, while Koffi took the role of rythm, with Lebou on Mi-solo.

Yea, Koffi never had confidence in Coco Tchomba - too one-dimensional. I also don't understand why Kaps Kapangala didn't get more time; he faired better becoming a session drummer. Djuju Music was the best session drummer so he was very reliable.

My favorites are Fouta Djallon, Asprine, & Bambino, but I really loved Etat Civil. Of all the Koffi songs I've played a lot, Etat Civil is probably the one I repeated the most.

I know there are songs that did not make the cut due to time constraints, I wonder if Koffi has those recordings for himself still. Also, he used to make multiple instrumental variations of his songs, so he might have different versions of Fouta Djallon, Park ya Baba, Bambino, & Chantou.

By the way, its me who took the booklet on Discogs with Stephie, pas de faux pas, noblesse oblige, magie, v12 and other, if someone want the booklet in large format i can send him !

I think that is Beniko who played the distortion but i’m not sure. Why Sam Tshintu dont sang in V12 ? The era where Koffi traveling with only 4 singers in Europe had already started at this time?

Merci masta. I really appricate the online community we've established with educated contributers here, youtube (Pado Kwado, Ingénieur Lz Tumbula, Harris Diavua Salakiaku, Shaddy Raddy922, and many more), & Discogs (dicapipups, Kozak5, zedimaliga, etc) to preseve the greatness (and negatives) of the genre.

BTW, I uploaded the album booklet in order, but everytime I do this it always goes out of order when posted. If anyone has a solution to this it would be appreciated for future posts like this

Matebu you should download CamScanner the application for phones. It lets you take pictures and then it can convert them in ADP or regular Jpeg. Let me know if you need assistance, I been uploading all my work paperwork with it for two years it saved me from having to stop at the library to literally scan what I wanna send away. You can use it for pictures as well and the quality is pretty good.
