So sad to loose such a legend of African and jazz music



From BBC
“Legendary jazz trumpeter Hugh Masekela, a leading figure in the struggle to end apartheid and "the father of South African jazz", has died aged 78.

In a statement, his family said he had "passed peacefully" in Johannesburg "after a protracted and courageous battle with prostate cancer".

Masekela gained global recognition with his distinctive Afro-Jazz sound and hits such as Soweto Blues.

The 1977 song became synonymous with the anti-apartheid movement.

In a statement, South African President Jacob Zuma said Masekela's death was "an immeasurable loss to the music industry and to the country at large".

Zuma continued: "His contribution to the struggle for liberation will never be forgotten."

I really think it would shifted the paradigm away from Wenge MM vs Wenge BCBG rivalry at the time, especially with how good Jugement Dernier (1998) was. Son Altesse should've been among big 4gen leaders - he was even signed to JPS.

Had Titanic or Force d’intervention sounded like this album, people would’ve lost their minds. The sebenes are arguably more powerful and unique. The off-beat “lentement” drumming style really sets it apart. The sound still blows me away, waaaay ahead of it’s time. One of the rare albums where you hear every single instrument very audibly. I believe the sound engineer was Jean-Marc Bidaubayle at Studio Marcadet.

This album was recorded with fresh recruits, including the likes of Alvarito Solo "B52", Jeansan Sakoko, Kaddy Bass, and Jordan Kusa (when he was still a vrai chanteur).

In my opinion, the last truly great BCBG sebene song from a BCBG album, as the sound is perfect. Great composition as well.


Eric Gbenye "Mobali" was one those names you always used to hear, not so much anymore

Loniatara on SS was alright, but the sound was bad.

Congolese Music / I WONDER WHAT HIS INSPIRATION WAS?

Le Karma sings differently here. When it come to modern rhumba it doesn't get any better than this - 12/10. Very refreshing album

Karmapa - Kassapard (CALIGULA, Vol.1)

Beniko Zero Faute - Beta lindanda!

The first video captures it from the very begining. The sound is poor, but it still wows. Brukina Faso... "Faso, Fasola!" - Defao voice & "Grande Cadre" Titina

I’m shocked it’s this low... this means lots of African artists are making peanuts. Well if they’re even making anything, with all the dead production houses that came back to make streaming money. Now I really see why concerts and tours are vital


There have been responses saying that the YT amount is closer to $1000 (more if you have ad sponsors). People are also asking for his sources. He’s a popular rapper, so I’m pretty sure he’s accurate.

And the joke is Tidal pays much more because nobody has it past the free trial.

The band was bound to break up, but it’s unfortunate the brotherhood can’t remain a full brotherhood


Pentagone remain refreshing every time i listen to the album

Congolese Music / LOL, KOFFI THE PROLIFIC SELF-PROMOTER

Haha, one would think he’s releasing Effrakata Part 2 with the way he’s gassing himself. English subtitles so our non-French speakers can understand

I feel like we had a thread on this in the past, but I couldn't find it. I remember Saddam Kongulu had a policy that all songs dedicated to him had to be the best on the album, or there would be consequences. Like blocking releases.

Junior had a much better sound from that South African studio they recorded at, but you can tell they had more fun with Wabelo Rango, as it wasn't a forced dedication. Both top notch

The way he's so passionate about gassing Werra, while holding a straight face always gets me ;D ;D

^ Before the Obamas die, they must greet Werrason. What?

Domestique riche:

Congolese Music / THE MOST UNIQUE SOUNDING GÉNÉRIQUE?

Somo Trop gets me going everytime I give it a listen. One of the generiques than remains powerful from the first to last second. Dady Bola, Mongrantana, and Deo SFR (RIP) playing like they were possessed.


The later banned Nkila Mongroso dance was the dance of 2003 after Koyimbiko started to die out

The first album release since King Kester’s passing. Wow, it’s like King Kester himself oversaw the album. So good.

It’s the first time since Franco’s passing that I’ve seen a band so faithful to keeping their boss’ heritage alive. They’re all wearing a jean jacket on the cover; aka King Kester’s favorite article of clothing

Congolese Music / LMAO - THE LEBANESE DEFAO (SOUKOUS MAKHOUL)

This had me cracking up. Not going to lie, it packs some heat though. Alvarito Solo and Ile de Cambodge delivering as usual
