About people being enslaved. Whether they are traded or not, it is just a matter of case.

Yeah, true guys, slavery still exists, but not just the old Arabian slave trade. In Ivory Coast on cocoa plantations and in India in rug factories it is also present. There is a list of companies online that are claimed to manufacture chocolate from cocoa that is imported from plantations that keep slaves. One of these is Snickers and Mars. And maybe Nestlé, but I am not sure. It is a well known fact for decades. Even the UK is reported as a major place of slave keepers, hidden slavery has quite high rates there. I also read somewhere, that rich families in Gabon also import slaves from West-Africa to keep them in their houses like servants.

Old School Music / Re: Good video of Jean Bosco Mwenda

These videos are real gems. A reminiscent of what guitar music was like in rural areas, before electric instuments took over. And this music still can be heard at various places. If you search for more videos from the producer who published this video, you can find many others that are so great. Pepe Manuaku is a big admirer of this guy anyway.

Here is another one of this genre:

Congolese Music / Re: CD SHOPs Paris
« on: June 29, 2017, 03:19 »
I can help you buy any CD online and can send it to you, but you need to search for it. Recently, the number of online shops decreased. Paris based shops may have some stock, for example Lampe Fall, that is a very good shop. They sell some older stock too, though not as many as Village Afro in the past.
