I've been replaying this song like crazy for the past couple of days, it sounds so fresh! Hopefully they'll blow up and it's heart warming
to see awesome musicians continuing to keep the culture alive.



Fabregas makes a appearance towards the end


The backing band Les Masques is fireeee, Kevany El Shabazz is one to watch as well. They all have so much potential.

Congolese Music / Re: Inoss B continues with attacking Fally
« on: November 10, 2018, 09:26 »
As much as I'm not a fan of Innoss'B Afrobeat (though he calls it AfroCongo) sound he does have a point about him being overlooked. And I do agree with it being unfair that you have to create an alliance with popular musicians in order to get your music heard in the Congolese music  industry which creates an even bigger divide between the older and new generations.

Which is already becoming increasingly obvious
 I think the problem is that he shouldn't be competing or worried about Fally because he's clearly doing something different, and  are on different paths.

Congolese Music / Re: Folkflorique and Traditional vibes

I know Mungala automatically means that their singing in Lingala.... but iv'e been DYING to hear traditional Bangala rhythms or hear at least what they sound like.

It just an album with featerings (Davido, Tiwa Savage, etc.) to counter Inoss B, Gaz Mawete, Youpi Yeah, those dj’s of Kinshasa and Fally with his Tokooos. It has also a generique and a rumba. The album of Quartier Latin will come in 2019 and that of Cindy some months after it.

Does this mean that we'll have to hear an Afro/Congo/Trap/Beat album from Koffi?

Will Congolese bands even matter 10-20 years from now?

Yes (1) and no(2). Speaking realistically, no 6 gen is on the rise.

That's incredibly sad to both.

 I think by the end this decade there's something going to change dramatically about Congolese music. Because based of Innos'B latest interview, the new artists on Trace Kitoko and articles like this popping up:


https://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/afp/article-6314493/Weve-got-power-In-DRC-rap-moves-rumba.html

The 6th generation seems like they're not interested in Rumba and Ndombolo at all, which makes me fear that live musicians/orchestras are going to be in danger.

Koffi is still on the top people are dancing on Alidor and Papa Mobimba aye, its not V12, Monde Arabe, Effrakata or Loi. But he’s still giving everything he got and he’s doing better then some 5eme Generation-artists. Don’t forget that he’s 62 years old. Alot of people don’t realize that.

The Lègende will not be special. It just an album with featerings (Davido, Tiwa Savage, etc.) to counter Inoss B, Gaz Mawete, Youpi Yeah, those dj’s of Kinshasa and Fally with his Tokooos. It has also a generique and a rumba. The album of Quartier Latin will come in 2019 and that of Cindy some months after it.

LMAO y'all ever heard of a joke?

I think Kanye is so bothered by Drake being the number one rapper, he feels the need to jump on the African/Caribbean wave just like Drake did. Specifically Dancehall and Afrobeats. Rihanna's next album is reportedly going to delve in the same genres too.

Congolese Music / Re: MMM INTERESTING TUTU CALUDJI INTERVIEW
« on: October 10, 2018, 00:16 »
This interview is going to be lit, he had a whole ass entrance and took an oath lol

SN: Can someone clarify this part,  Alain Makaba took over Werrason's position of handling finances or was it the other way around? And was he giving the musicians more than what Werra did (which made Werra look bad then bringing in the lawyer) or was it that Werra was giving out less than he did causing issues between him and the musicians?
My Lingala isn't that sharp either

Congolese Music / Re: SANKARA DOING COMEDY AS A WOMAN
« on: October 08, 2018, 23:57 »
I've always thought Blaise Element and Sankara were way too effeminate and were always on the DL.
No shock here.

Congolese Music / Re: Fally wins 3 trophees at the AFRIMMA
« on: October 08, 2018, 23:35 »
Quick question, are the Kora awards as "relevant" as it was 15-20 years ago and if not, what happened?

11
Where's part 2?

So i'm not too well informed on the history of Zaiko because it seems pretty long/intimidating and i'm not where and which angle of their music I should move up from.
The only album that i've listened to in full is Nippon Banzai.

I'm hoping to get into different eras/ and know the their best line up as well as their best albums from their catalogue.
Any suggestions?

No comment on the side chick situation, but I commend Fally for definitely hustling by building a brand. Idk if it's his idea or he's surrounded by some smart people but he's making sure that he can be a jack of all trades by singing, dancing and acting which will broaden his appeal as an African superstar. He's making money moves! 

SN: Didn't Didier Ndenga direct a good chunk of the music videos back in the day? It looks like he'll get appropriate funding off this show which is great as well.

Wow, this sucks.... and i'm hoping that he's innocent. I hate the fact that I feel sad for him, even as a woman. Koffi's music and enigma meant the world to me during my childhood, it made my life when I got to speak to him when I was a kid. He's such a legend and his work pushed the culture to new heights but if he's declared guilty then the law will take it's course. If the Congolese government protects him, then the ought to be ashamed of themselves and it shows that they aren't  ready to leave corruption and nepotism behind. 
I wonder what impact this is going to have on other musicians if he's sentenced.

Does Dadju count as a Congolese Musician or a French Based artist who's Congolese? I hear elements of Congolese music in his work but for the most part it sound Banku/Afrobeat. Anyways, I'll support  :).
