Congolese Music / BLAST FROM THE PAST #EXTRA MUSICA
« on: December 11, 2018, 06:39 »
I stand to be corrected but i have never heard of any Extra Musica rumba as good as this one. Normally when someones hears the name Extra Musica we normally associate it with top generiques not rumbas. Everything is just top notch in this track. Been on repeat for some days now.

Congolese Music / THIS IS USUALLY CONFUSING, MERCI RAMAZANI
« on: November 13, 2018, 13:08 »
I always find it difficult to differentiate between solo and mi-solo guitar in a song. Ramazani explains the two in simple terms starting at 12:30. Very insightful interview.

Congolese Music / Lamineur leaves Ferre's group.
« on: November 04, 2018, 20:43 »
Could it be that he wasn't given a song in the upcoming album?

Summary of the interview. He explains how he joined Maison Mere after being approached by Ferre and that for some time he had become a fan of Werrason even before the dislocation of Wenge 4*4 Tout Terrain. He also says the first day he was due for tests at la zamba, he didnt manage to do the test for some reason. So Ferre approached Igwee on the 2nd day after he saw that the person he had brought to join the group was not being given a chance to do the tests. And that when Ferre was introducing him (Kabose) to Nsone he (Nsone) mistook him for Montana Kamenga. He says he was then able to do the test on the same day as Zulema who would later join BCBG. He goes on to say Ferre was really worried that Kabose may not really impress the La Zamba parliamentarians, lol (the la zamba faithful audience who usually have a huge say as to who joins the movement). But to the surprise of everyone including himself he impressed during the test when he sang the song "Koffi Ayina". But that after that impressive test the worry about were he would fit into the Maison Mere first line up crept in since that almost every position in the line up had equally very good musicians such as JDT, Baby Ndombe, Ferre, Heritier, Adjani and Mabiala etc. So he says after the test Ferre advised him to buy a walkman and get all the three albums of Maison Mere at the time so that he could perfect his knowledge of the songs.

He also explains how Eboa Lotin joined the group. He says since Werrason was buying sometimes songs from Do Akongo. He says Do Akongo would write songs and play the guitar and basically put the melody to the songs by having Eboa Lotin sing in the songs before sending them to Werrason and that Eboa would deliver the cassettes to Werrason. So at some point Werrason asked Do Akongo to say who is the guy who sings in the cassettes you send to me and Do Akongo explained that Eboa the one who delivers the cassettes is the one who used to do the singing for him. He says thats how Eboa was asked to join the group. And that point during repetitions they would put Eboa to Compete with Ferre on some songs. He says it is at this point that he personally saw problems coming because that Eboa was sort of being sent to do that in order to frustrate Ferre.

He goes on to say they were on tour i think (UK) if i heard correctly, and it is during this time that he heard (he didn't witness it) but the story was that Ferre and Nsone got into a disagreement were Nsone slapped Ferre and Ferre was found crying in the toilet by Bill Clinton, so Bill Clinton appraoched Nsone to find out why he had slapped Ferre but that he couldnt get a clear explanation. And it seems that disagreement was the last straw and that is how Les Marquis was officially born while the rest of the group went back to Kin. He goes on to disclose how Nsone was clearly sad during the flight with the fact that Ferre and Co had officially left, and that he went to encourage him not to feel down.

He also talks about Heritier and how anyone who has passed through MM always has something bad to say about Heritier when in MM but that he didnt want to criticise Heritier because it happens that in every group there is that one guy who is close to the boss who is used to do the dirty work for the boss. He also talks about the Aimelia and Heritier affaire which i think Ndeko @Archos has written about in some posts sometime back. He also talks about how he left the group after being told that he was too old for the group and that he was not needed anymore.

He ends by talking about his upcoming group album with how many titles? (My french is still pretty bad but am teaching myself, any help will be appreciated ba ndeko. Lol). Ado then asks him why is it that songs by musicians nowadays have "explicit" lyrics. Kabose answers to say it just the interpretation of people which makes the songs to seem explicit. He gives an example of how people want to relate his recent generique "buka mbeto" to insults or excplicit lyrics. Lol

Congolese Music / SONGS TO PLAY ON LONG DISTANCE
« on: October 20, 2018, 06:01 »
What songs do forum members listen to when on a long distance journeys?
Am coming from Europe and me not being so much of a movie person, I endend up listening to audio extracts of the 1998 Bata clan concert by BCBG, Djodjo Ngonda song in particular. The chemistry among the band was simply out of this world. Amelia Liass was on top of his game with Ingenieur Cielebu Bula with his commentary in the song like "balobi mbula yasika, makambu yasika", made my over 10 hours flight short.

At minute 24:12 Ferre and Aimelia Liass are seen wiping off tears. While Sankara bursts into laughter. ;D ;D

Seems i missed the release of this clip from Contre Maitre. That boy (Joel?) who sings at 4:50 minutes if you not watching the clip you would think that's Cafe Roum's voice.

Congolese Music / THE LIFE OF AKIM (KASHAMA) PRINCE DE LAUSSANE
« on: August 13, 2018, 11:37 »
One of the Common names in Rumba in terms of Mabanga, buys a Rolex for 12 800 Euros?. What business is he involved in? He seems loaded.

Like the title says who do you think has the popularity and is sober enough to take over from Kabila and be able to navigate the different interests of the DRC, between JP BEMBA or MOISE KATUMBI CHAPWE if at all elections are held in December?
