Congolese Music / ONE OF THOSE POWERFUL SEBENE SONGS WE ALL MISS
« on: October 22, 2017, 23:32 »
The song brings heat from start to finish


Too bad mokuwa mbongo had no choice but to give into the rhumba album format after this album

One of our fellow members will need to brace themselves, as they may go into ecstasy reading this ;D

Direct Translation-

"Big thanks to my brother Ferre Gola Le Padre for having honored "Papa Wemba" (a real legend of Africa and of Congolese music). You are the new king of Congolese music brother,
I appreciate your hard labor and vocal force,
May almighty god continue to bless, guide and guard you presently and always brother.
- J.Martin "

Usually a générique with a rhythm section this long would piss me off, but it works here as the point was to present all 25 (jk ;D ) of his atalakous and have them exercise vocally. Also present the addition of le meilleur drummer du moment, Île de Cambodge.


Audio:

Kabuya killed it

This and Libre Parcours 2 are my favorite Fally génériques

Congolese Music / A RECENT SONG THAT'S BEEN ON REPEAT FOR ME
« on: October 20, 2017, 23:03 »
A rhumba that's a nice breath of fresh air. I really hope Les Contre maîtres succeed long term


"The Guy is Good - Contre Maître Ibrator" (6:20)

It's been eerie quiet lately as if all the big artists are on sabbatical until sometime in 2018.

Not much recent developments from Koffi/QL, Wazekwa, BCBG (yeah, I know), Zaiko, Karmapa, Roga Roga & Extra, and more.

Ferre & Werrason already blessed us with great new albums.

Or even some of the Europe artists - although they are not major.
- Alain Mpela has a complete album, but seems to have lost confidence.
- Blaise Bula's still taking his sweet time working on his album
- Sam Tshintu?
- Reddy Amisi has recorded many new songs over past few years. And there's that duo project with Werrason coming whenever

Or a song dedicated to Koffi? Never heard of him, but lol is all I have to say. New music... I guess. Don't roast him too hard  ;D ;D


The female singer is really impressive, I must say. At least mention her name

Congolese Music / THE GREATEST ATALAKOU BATTLE EVER
« on: October 15, 2017, 02:56 »
Roberto Ekokota vs. Nono Atalakou Mombélé "L'empereur". Wenge Musica 4x4 BCBG vs. Zaiko Langa Langa


The orginal atalakou vs. the hottest atalakou of the early 90's. Roberto was way too hot to handle so he won by popular decision. The crowd fanning him and throwing money while he's performing ;D ;D

It's so nice to see how happy everyone was here and having fun. This is the happiest I've ever seen Werrason on stage

Man time has not been too kind to the sound quality. Like Solola Bien, the solo often sounds like mid-solo. I wonder why Al Nzimbi tuned percussions (snares specifically) the way he did. Most of the time the album sounds like they recorded it in a tin can.



The superb vocals & compositions by the Maison Mère dream is what saves the album. Every time I listen to Kibuisa I think "legendary"; everything was perfect. But this album, most times I can't listen in full.

It was recorded at Studio Guillaume Tell, a prestiugous Paris studio and the great Al Nzimbi was arrangeur, so I' don't understand how the sound was so subpar.

*Side note, this album and period (Koyimbiko) was the highpoint of Celeo's career.

It's great that Congolese music has infiltrated French popular music, but the negative side is that they're stealing artistic property and making it theirs. All (literally) the choreography from this song comes sebene portion Force de Frappe - Au Secours of Binda Bass. This is due to the lack of herdity in genre.


Then the western audience watches and thinks they created a new amazing dance. Lots of other examples, but this is the clearest

His interview with Ado Yuhe was so insightful about all things Wenge, but was unfortunately deleted. Finally he has returned to recount the entire orginal Wenge story again from start-to-finish.


I would never question anything he or "Fondé" Didier Masela has to say regarding Wenge history. All these years I never knew Kija was the inverse of his name Jaki (Jackie), and Brown was given to him by JB

So much information - like Werrason the childhood drummer in Celio stars.

"Ambassadeur Kija Brown, omoni niveau?"  :D

Congolese Music / KOFFI'S CONCERT IN MONROVIA FOR GEORGE WEAH

Cindy's back to her full duties as first lady ;D

16 mins of nostalgia


A late 2013 release, but my strong feeling is that it flew under the radar, so some of you guys not have heard it yet. I think it's great, but why was Equaliser invited? 5 sec of him and you realize why things didn't work out after leaving Fally.

Somono Dolce
Mboshi Lipasa
CNN
Equaliser

Champion Esthétique
Solo: Ramazani & Felly Tyson (he's namechecked by Champion)
Accompa: Fofo Le Collégien
Bass: Binda Bass "Roberto Carlos"

Sounds like it was recorded in Studio NRJ, Ramazani's home base In recent years. So he's probably  the arranger as well.

Man, Awilo messed up ... Barbara Kanam is still the most beautiful chanteuse. Aging gracefully

Behaving like all of us with our mothers :D :D
