Congolese Music / EVOLUTION OF CONGOLESE MUSIC 1960 - 2019

Now I don't know why but Vital Kamerhe's process has not receved the national attention it should with that said, I have seen very few musicians who spoke up to defend Vital or even go on TV to say they were sorry for him. Robinio for example he was saying Vital Kamerhe le pacificateur in his Bina Na Nga song but I doubt he reached out for Vital, I took Robinio as an example but it can be any artist. Werra for example he was at an interview with Papy Mboma saying he call Vital Kamerhe Vieux ViKa when in need of something, has Werra pulled his money to take Vital out? I doubt it. What happens when Donors get in prison/lose money? Are the musician still that loving and caring with them or they just avoid them?

Congolese Music / IS THIS THE FAMOUS GIRL...?

Is the lightskin girl next to Robinio at 3:12 with white top and black trousers the famous Robinio's girlfriend who has been funding his career? If yes what is her name her origin and why does she funds Robinio? Without getting anything back?

The name of the style played from the beginning till the 4:23 minute? Sometimes I forgot how much music and different style Congo has

Heritier as an Atalaku was a smart move it is weird but also interesting to hear Heritier as an atalaku

Congolese Music / I MISS THIS ROBINIO
« on: July 03, 2020, 21:56 »

I can understand the desire to expand to the African Market and make shorter songs without guitar and Atalakus but boy that guy might not be a mediocre singer but boy the guy knows how to make a generique play Tsha Nanu Boye, 4 Lettres and Ye Yo to me must be counted between the classic generiques of the recent times.
To me of the clan wenge him, Fabregas, Capucino and to some extent Heritier and Deplixk make the best generique. I wish he could come back with more music like this.

Man Kabuya is just born for the music, he transforms everything in gold. Tabu Ley's son generique nailed it, Robinio generique nailed it, I hope he manages his alcohool problem and take that torch of the Bill school
Ye Yo is a proof of that

4 Lettres is a really nice video simple but clean I liked the Arabian dress up correlated with the pool scene and the translator idea in real time translating the words from Lingala to French

Etirette starts in a legendary way but it gets a little bit down on the end

About Robinio's atalaku well Showman to me is a genius. I know he gets a lot of flagged for screaming but he doesn't screams just sings at the top of his lungs, I have never heard a bad crie from him. Never a lot of Robinio's success can be credited to him at the end of the day Tsha Nanu Boye the most successful generique of Robinio to this day is a crie by Showman

The Bill Copycat.
Unfortunately.I don't know his name and I think that he provides great completeness in the group but I wish he developed more of.his own voice rather than being the umpteenth copy of Bill, he is good but people will never remember his name.if he keeps copying Bill.

Cinq Chantier.
I wish he had left Werra earlier still to this day I don't know how Bercy got all that space when Werra in the past could use Cinq Chantier, Cinq Chantier is a good writer and Robinio makes him shine, but it seems he is too much shy to be an Atalaku, he doesn't take the scene like the Bill copycat and Showmam do, but at the end of the day he is there for.writing cries and drop one on the generique.

Relistening it in the previous days I have found out that Anti-Terro is the actual last album where JB actually put real effort and try to make something very good. I don't know if he wanted to make a TH2 or not. It was areally good album. I skip only few songs (Ezau and Evrywhere) Genta was in the middle of his prime with what was left of his beautiful natural voice, Tutu Caludji was back in the group switching from singer to atalaku flawlessly especially in the vocal of Bruno Kissungua was really great with his vocal ability and Cellulaire actually had the opening spot for the main generique (Anti Terro) with him having a lot of very good cries. The singers JDL, Rio, Kibens singing great in LeBaron, Chai in Amour Sans Tache really did his thing, Biku LeBrun with that stunning song Grand A, Richard Mukena (what a great 2nd voice) Bogus Bompema duet with JB Doleance, and Abrahm only being a dancer along with Evariste, The main generique video was more of a war type of thing. A thing for paying hommage to JB's beginnings in Wenge Musica while the rest of the song's videos were a mix between street kin life and Europe old 1800s style. J'Suis Là is one of my favourite song because is different than what would you expect from a Congolese Rhumba song and also Lekasopo especially on the seben part was fire, I also like the fact that they have used the dancers to sing and make a rap song Kolo Martyrs. I know this album does not have enough legendary songs to be legendary like TH, Solola Bien and Loi, V12 and Generation Bercy but I think we can compare it to Temoignage (Temoignage was better for me because the cries of Anti-Terro aren't really known like the one in temoignage) Skol Longitima, Monde Arabe etc.

What do you think about this album


Ekokota fire and passion is something that I still cannot find from anybody in the Congolese music scene, I think Ekokota is the best Atalaku voicewise.

Congolese Music / THIS SONG SEEMS AN 1800 OPERA SONG

Nono Fudji is having the same imprint and drive that Abraham Mignon had, he is on the good path too bad him Tolbett Solo and Fusee (And to some extent Ben Laden) aren't getting the exposure and shine that Maison Mere artist usually have. Maybe they have choosen the wrong group, if you choose BCBG you will have a good life and good money. Of course but remember that if you go solo you either keep asking JB money or you will struggle hard to get traction.

Congolese Music / I WISH TO SEE THIS MORE...

Genta and the Atalaku of Zaiko and Lofombo brought the song to the next level why these type of collaborations aren't more prevalent in the Congoleseu music system? Can you imagine a generique with Jamaique, Fusee, Kabuya, and all the big name atalakus with solo guitar shared by Sarah Solo, Bicorine Makaba Arc En Ciel &Tolbert Solo? It would be a killer.

I like a lot this song but you can see that everybody except the instrumentalist haven't put their best effort, Genta clearly out of key (but since that kinda funny voice he adopted it has become a costant) and Bill himself he has talent but he keeps doing this stuff where he puts his 50% of force. I could understand if it was in a song but is always lie that only with Escalator and other recent song he woke up, I like the concept of Fally making a mabanga like type of singing while Bill animates but the sound mixing in that time (Bill & Fally) is pretty bad with Bill voice almost disappearing, but I prefered to see Fally Atalakuing along with Bill, anyway I think it was disrespectful from Fally to not show for the clip because all the other artist showed up. It is so weird to here a Congolese based Rapper who raps in French. I understand that they had to put a lot of artist to create buzz but that was the part I have least liked.

Man Kabuya just have a gift in whatever song you put him he has the ability to make everything he touches gold

I bet Wemba banged Peggy's wife too

What happened in Peggy Tabu that made him not to become like the big Congolese artist and or like the big Franco Congolese ones? I can clearly see he was based in Europe and for a guy based in Europe he had pretty much amazing results. Did he fail because he should have pursue a more European career so keep the lyrics only in French with some sprint of Lingal Did he fail bcause people were costantly comparing him to his father? Or because he was trying to break in Kin being in Europe?
