Just found out in the comment section that Congolese guitar legend Lokassa Kasia Denis( Lokassa ya Mbongo ) and former member of Sam Mangwana’s Africa All Stars, has been hospitalized in Columbia after a stroke and is sadly struggling to communicate verbally.
From what I understand he’s been living in Columbia for a number of years, if you follow Shakira you’ll understand that Congolese music style is very big in Columbia since the 1970’s.
He’s apparently been living alone and his family and fans outside of Columbia may not be aware of his current condition.
I’m calling out anybody on this forum that has contact with his family to please make them aware in case they haven’t heard.


I'm neither a fan boy of Fally or Ferre, but, I must admit Ferre sang a credible and distinguished version of one of my favorite Congolese tracks.

Congolese Music / First known Video of "Atalaku" cry
« on: September 25, 2019, 09:43 »
Been looking for this video for years, the first know animation of Atalaku on video by Zaiko, watch from 19:00

I stumbled on this old clip of a young Felix Wazekwa, what caught my eyes most was the dance routine close to the end. It was normal and void of any robotic movement that has become a signature move of Wazekwa.

Can any of our esteemed Seniors, explain when this transitioned happed, thanks in advance.



Can anybody explain why this talented vocalist never made it big with Quartier Latin, he's got a voice unlike any other  and the dance skills to match.

Mbenzu Ngamboni Boskill aka Bozi Boziana , is my favourite Congolese artist of the last 30 years. Always calm in a turbulent industry. Perhaps none has done more to promote Women in Congolese artist...her protege's include Deese Mukange, Jolly Detta just to name a few.


hi guys, this a song I've been listening to since I was young, can you name the Atalaku ?


Congolese Music / Is Werrason a genuine vocalist?
« on: March 17, 2017, 10:04 »
Guys your opinion on the Vocal skills of werrason?
Personally, I'm always amused when ever Werrason intrudes into a beautiful song like (Vita Imana) ...he never seems at home doing vocals, although his confidence level is amusing.

So is he considered a good vocalist in Kinshasa?, has he ever been told that he can't sing?

your opinion guys!

Congolese Music / Aime Kiwakana - Anybody know when he died?
« on: October 07, 2015, 20:02 »

Can anybody tell me when this great artist from  O.K. JAZZ died?, can't find much on him.


I got to appreciate congolese music in the 1990's while living in London and Washington DC, the music from that decade was modern yet pure, the 1980's were the foundation years and the 2000's was an era in which congolese music gained great popularity through youtube and the internet.

I had songs like Koffi Olomide's Dessepoir, Losambo - Extra Musica and Reine de Saba - Bozi Boziana on repeat.
