Congolese Music / EVER BEEN TO LONDON?
« on: Today at 12:42 »
This song is about breaking your back I like that people all over are catching the fire...but I don't see much backbreaking here. But the real question is have you ever been to London (at the 5.20 mark)  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

All Heritiers soloists must have learned to play solo guitar from Marc House. The licks are doubled and tripled making a solo lick sound like a rhythm. If you Flamme Kapaya enthusiast, these licks won't pull you in. 

We can only dream of a Wenge MMM reunion of the great team. Not so sure it will ever happen. Could you imagine them covering songs from Intervention Rapide to A la Que Leu Leu with Tindika Lokito to top it up? Miss those days.

Some of the animations sounded more like Arafat than Kila Mbongo. Was Arafat already there during this album and just didn't make the video?

Congolese Music / FROM ACROSS THE SEAS

This band, SOUKOUS EXPRESS did its thing in the 90s. It took me a while to know that these dudes were Antillais. They ranked in the Dr. Sakis, Dany Engobo type soukous , but regardless they stuck to soukous instead of Zouk.

Is this what is commonly called Culture reappropriation?

Does anyone know who their soloist is?

Happy New Year everyone. May 2019 be better than the past year and hopefully less polemic and more good music.

I've been around Congolese music for a minute and I do not know who Maitre Gims is (Alias for someone we all know?). Could someone please enlighten me? Danke Schon!

He is a rapper in France. He released a very long album this year that I did enjoy.  But you have to like rap.

Thank you for the enlightment...

If only the message of this song has the weight to penetrate the heart of decision makers who could effect change, there will be positive and significant changes in Congo today and same for all other musicians who sang for a change in their countries. BobMarley and all Reggae Artists sang for a change in the never came. Maybe one day, conscious singers will win.

Congolese Music / FALLY'S INFLUENCE
« on: December 16, 2018, 11:06 »
Except for Extra Musica whose Etat Majeur was vastly used in choreographies, Fally has the most copied choreographies of all modern-day musicians. Just about all of his generiques are covered in choreography. Original was big when it came out, now this also has a followership. His music may not always be catchy but his dances are widely known, which invariably makes him more popular and a commercial success than others.

If I'm wrong enlighten me... ;D ;D ;D ;D

Honorable mention: Rosalinda "Break your back" is also doing it....

The woman in traditional clothes killed it at number 10, then number 6. Yours may differ...

That was not bad at all. Keep it up, Big Boss!

Congolese Music / Re: Any information on this generique?

yes part of maxi single formidable i have had opportunity to listen to it i think the guy will shine but it seems he arrived at the wrong moment,when nsone takes the gamble of going into politics so he is not as focused on music as he used to be

Too bad for him on that aspect. But while in WMMM he's the most viable in the atalakou dept, no doubt.

Congolese Music / Any information on this generique?

Just wondering if this is part of an album in the works or just a maxi-single? either way, Jamaique will shine.

Impatiently waiting for this. would be nice to hear Jamaique in a studio version of his works. He's quite flexible with his voice. I just hope he doesn't get burned out doing all the work while others are slacking.

I wish this guy would clean his act up. He's probably one of the most talented atalakous out there. Animations after animations without repeating the same cries. so talented yet very unreliable. IIf fally wants to stay on top through animation, Kabuya is the guy to invest in. Identite is good, boussole is good, but Kabuya beats them all.

Congolese Music / Re: Congolese and Tidal!!!

can you play music for free on Tidal? I downloaded Spotify once and it took over my computer with commercials which made me delete it.
