Congolese Music / Re: MY FAVOURITE OLD SCHOOL SONG OF THE MOMENT
« on: September 16, 2018, 07:03 »
This is one of the few times that Awilo was actually singing....He could easily be considered a showman than a singer. His animations of the 2000s were also nothing like traditional animations a la Bill and co. His name will never die....

Congolese Music / Re: CHINESE ARE TAKING OVER MUSICALLY

I know a lot of us can't tell difference between Asians. I believe those are Japanese. Zaiko Langa Langa and Papa Wemba left something behind when they performed in Japan.

Fela will stop the music just 30 seconds in and say "Does anyone here knows how to play Afro Beat? I no fit use this kind music for my message! I no get love song."

By the way, Fela's Afro Beat was the Original Afro Beat. What they call Afro Beat today is not by Fela's Standard.

The Boss of the band: Fella Anikulapo KUTI.
Drums: Titina Al CAPONE.
Conga’s: Ally MBONDA.
Rhythm Guitar: Lokasa Ya MBONGO and Shaba KAHAMBA.
Solo Guitar: Dally KIMOKO ,Patou SOLO and Flamme KAPAYA
Bass Guitar: Gode LOFOMBO.
Animation: Tutu KALUDJI and Bill KALONJI.
Singers: JB MPIANA, Ferre GOLA, Papa WEMBA, Zuli ZULEMA, Mayaula MAYONI, Franco LUAMBO, Aurlus MABELE and Koffi OLOMIDE.
Dancers: Marcation Francois and Monica CELESTE.

Everyone is a star until another star shows up. Brigade buried Celeo in Sous Sol and I don't think he ever recovered from it. Celeo will always get respect for his animations and I still think FARA FARA was his best animation, but he cannot say he has what it takes to beat Brigade. For one brigade's animations are very catchy and he can do various animations in one generiques, whereas Celeo is very limited and cannot say he's has produced a lot of catchy animation (other than Koyimbiko).

Sorry celeo, accept it. your musical clock has expired.

Side Note: I know has papers to live in Europe why has not done this? He is "le pere des jumaux" which I think he had with an Europe based woman. Anyone know?

They have to remake it and stay on the same key during that second part. It would be fun to have it going for three to four minutes.

And the order of success from that team is:

Ferre
Heritier
Kabosse
Mr. International
Amelia

Atalaku wise

Bill (Obviously)
Celeo

The ones with albums but no spark
Baby Ndombe
JTrois

WMMM has produced a lot of offsprings from this lineup. Too Werra can never get them all back together for one more concert.

How old is Lobeso now??? 45? 55? Dude showed up in WMM looking as if he was just 19 years old.....lol.

Serious note: He gets more respect from me now that I know where he came from. Also, he should have stayed with this style of animation. I could actually stand him here.  His folklore animation style in WMMM was turrible (as Charles Barkley would say)

African Typic Collection is his most popular song. It was played everywhere in West Africa in the eighties. I still listen to it to date. Great singer, great song.

Congolese Music / Re: FALLY IPUPA - ECOLE (OFFICIAL CLIP)
« on: July 29, 2018, 20:14 »
I really start to think that Fally's generiques are starting to suffer from some common ingredients. He has great atalakus, he has Felly Tyson ( a legend) but I really think people are getting tired of his drumming style (in generiques). There's nothing bad with being different (Wazekwa) but you also have to think about who you are making music for. I think his generiques will be much more appreciated if he for once let his drummer play like all congolese drummers in sebenes and generiques. His generiques are also very long. Instead of cramming all your atalakus in one song, why not make a couple of danceable generiques with different animators doing their thing?

Ferre's generiques are monotonous as fock. Now fally is also starting to be boring. Well, when you have made it, no need to worry about innovation because you now have loyal fans who will always buy your songs.

Congolese Music / Re: (New) Kabuya - Lingala Facile
« on: July 28, 2018, 14:54 »
Kabuya!!!!!! if you only you knew your potential to take the atalaku section to the next level.....That generique is not bad at all. It sounds "wet" as in studio quality.

Congolese Music / DID HE EVER MAKE IT
« on: July 19, 2018, 18:15 »
I stumbled on this just recently. He was a prodigy in the making and looked like he would have made the WMMM roster (although he needed some work). I wonder what happened to him. Maybe he was discouraged. Anyone knows?

I listened to these guys since they first came out. They were the best at using keyboards Africa ever produced

Wale Badru (Benin) and Woya (Cote D'ivoire).

Ambiance Facile was a club jam back in the day....What are your other favorites?

Nice to read this...really.

Toolz where are you from... ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Not quite a Ferre fan in generiques, but if he wants to change people's opinion about his style, he needs to either change soloists or have them change their guitars. Most people are right when they say all his generiques sound the same. If DJing at a club, I'm sorry, Ferre's generiques will be only on demand....Great singer, great Rumba guy but generiques and sebenes are just not his forte.
QQJD generique had Japonais as soloist and you can tell that that was not Marhouse or the other fella (alhaji something).

Robinio will be more successful when he realizes that he needs to change the screaming atalaku. I don't understand why everyone else knows this but not him.

And it seems every one of the 5th generation musicians is going for the Fabregas formula. At the end of the day, le Metis Noir brought something to the table.
