Habi Toure... she's a beauty







They're cast mates on a new show called River Hotel, which will premier on TV5 Monde on June 25th:

Songs that make proud to be an African, like the Senegalese and Malians like to do. We're too obsessed with trying to be European that we often loose idenity. The sapeurs have influenced Congolese music culture so much, as well as those who really wanted to distance themselves from Mobutu's once mandatory abacost dress code.

There are songs like Ebale Ya Zaire, Ultimatum (sorta), but the rest is mostly bolingo or mabanga lyrics.

One of the my favorite examples (and favorite song) from Defao:


The original is just as great:

160K views in one month is very, very good for an artist like Blaise who basically went 11 years without an album

Monde Arabe (Heros National)... Good stuff.... Koffi keeps a fresh/young band, which is something that can't be said about some of his colleagues

And fantastic interpretation by Koffi. At his best

An overlooked album?

I feel like we as the listening public regard Kin é Bouge (groundbreaking opus) & Pentagone (nostalgia) with higher esteem than these two LPs. As time has passed, I starting to believe this was their most complete album, from a composition and acoustic sound standpoint.

Werra proved himself a chanteur here:


One of, if not the best forced praise songs (Saddam) by Masela:


JB had two hit songs; “Hi Ho Ha New Image” & “Cap de Benelux (really Makaba’s composition)”


Alain Mpela’s song which made him a huge sensation:

It has absolutely nothing to do with the song and gives me nkisi undertones. Who's conception was it? I've only watched it like 3-4 times as a result

Meaning dedicated writers, and not big leaders.

Simaro - Greatest, all-time. Repertoire speaks for itself - Faute ya Commercant, Mabele, Ebale Ya Zaire, Affaire Kitikwala, Verre Cassé, Mandola, Dati Petrole, Kadima


Max Mongali (RIP) - beautiful self-reflection song. Remix of Idi Mane (1973).


Mayaula Mayoni - Don Padrino (RIP)


Pascal Poba - Voyage, Chantal Switzerland, Blandine, Omba. All of Wenge's most famous rhumbas


Benz Petrole - “Le Savant de la RDC”. Highly respect and has collaborated with most artists. Song for Arthis Photo (aka the person who did the cover art for most artists)


Do Akongo “Dikoel” -  Sens Inverse, Kot-Kot


El Dorado -


Honorable mentions - Strevos Niarcos (RIP) Pida Star, Didace Iboula, Mosaka, Riva Menga (RIP), Adada & Mobe, Fiston Youlou

My two favorite songs from Viagra, along with Très Fort.

I used to think Collation was Sam’s composition, but a friend once said it’s not:

^ Fogy Tureau “le grand pétrolier finance” has lots of great songs in his name, but has disappeared from the scene.

Ah, one of my favorite Sunday afternoon relaxation songs. Also, officially credited to Sam:

Rightfully so, I’m afraid. Looking like he was going to choke trying to entertain JB
