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.

Congolese Music / FOR OLD TIMES’ WENGE SAKE

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?
« on: January 08, 2018, 19:51 »
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

I guess the public’s attention has been elsewhere, but it’s been a while since there have been multiple good génériques released around the same time. As usual, too much focus on big artist and their polemics.

Been playing them almost daily:
Karmapa - My favorite. Generique from Disc 2 Caligula, in case video is unviewable for some



Some serious heat from Victoria Eleison the way King Kester (RIP) would’ve liked it

Pida Star - Mais... feat. Gesac & some crazy guitar work

Anything is possible

Of course of Choc Star & Viva La Musica fame. As well as Maître Gims. Dadju gifted the plaque to his dad. Very proud dad he must be

Pascal Poba, one of the great composers and advisors of the 90’s and early 2000’s. He was the one who composed JB’s "Omba" and Werra’s "Chantal Switzerland". Known for his deep and educations lyrics. It’s easy to see where JB got influence for his hit song “Education”.

Really nice songs featuring JB Mpiana:



Also, Koffi Olomide:


Pascal & Wemba & Adolphe Dominguez:


Listen to the way 20 year old Ramazani was hitting intricate guitar licks (4:00-) on the sebene like Makaba and Pepe Felly Manuaku. Also, Mboshi Lipasa with the Loi era animations:
