Hello forum members, this new section is about the song we all love but focusing the point on a vital thing for the music the vocals both in Rumba and in Atalaku section I will start obviously with a Werra  song and with the most popular one except the generique: Kelvis Nkoyi

Rumba Section:

 The main vocalist are four: Werrason, who sing for most of the part and then we have Limousine, Olivier and Arnake.
Finally Werra  after the flop of Fleche Ingeta comes with a great tune in the Rumba section even though the mabangas are a little annoying in the song ensemble.


Wow, it is since the Bill and Cello days with the addiction of Brigade that I never heard something like that, Anti-Balle and Ambulance are basically so different but even so the same they can really compensate each other like it was in BCBG for Cellulaire(RIP) and Genta, great showcase of talent by those two


Choir vote: 10
I have never had a Choir so cohesive together you could feel the voice of Limousine and Arnake on the high notes (1er voix) and Olivier who has been great to balance the minority of being the only bass notes (2 voix) guy.
At the same time I could hear the choir as a whole, you can hear Werra  coordinate the operation behind the scene

Werrason vote: 8

Werra  in the Wenge days used to be a great second voice but now seems to do just average, but finally he brought back some of that spark from BCBG periods and really did a great work, the transition to parts between 1:48 and 2:02 really gave me that Kibuisa Mpimpa vibe well done

Limousine Awisha vote: 8,5

This guy knows how to sing along with Cafè Rhoum and Arnake he is the only guy who could sing anything without problems, but the fact that his voice his too much similar to Ferre made him loose a 9 he should have someone to tell him to remodel his voice on his own like Roga did with Papy Bastin when he was a copycat of Emeneya and fix some live singing voice's problems, anyway nothing to say on how he have sang there, a very great talent who only needs some originality to be considered one of the best talent of his generation

Oliveira vote: 7+

Oliviera used to deliver some seriously outstanding 2nd voices vocal since his first appearance in Sous-Sol but since Fleche Ingeta something has changed in his voice he started to be less consistent less powerful like his mind was somewhere else than music, about the vocal, well, he could have sang better and did some nuances who honestly couldn't make, in fact, I thought he was Nicodem at the beginning because Nicodemus the guy who really do not know how to use his voice but at the end of the day he didn't to bad and a give him a plus because unlike  the vocal he did an excellent job there.

Arnake R.Kelly vote: 10

Wow, just wow, I gave him a 10 because even though like his good friend Limousine has to much of "Neti-Ferre" voice he did some real serious work on Kelvis Nkoyi from 4:00 to 4:09 the guy was Ferre literally he sounded the same exact way but then in the 4:09 he did a crazy nuance who reveal his real singing voice free of Ferre's influences and I said finally this guy is starting to make some work there and this is why I thought of a 10 him and Cafe Rhoum compete for the best natural singer in Wenge sell not anymore since he is gone such a shame...



Anti-Balle Makatshwa vote: 10

I really don't know the way of Anti-Balle onto 7 jour and onto Wenge MM, but he really did well on this Lobeso (gone) crie and of course on the Eko Yinda he has started really well on this album and he is in great company and can be a great supporting actor of Ambulance and Goldberg or maybe even be the staring, finally that healthy competition taht made Celeo and Bill great is back


Ambulance vote: 10
He is the heir of Bill like Fusèe is the heir of Tutu Caludji, I don't if he writes his own cries or uses petit (kids) to writing it like Bill did (Brigade, Bercy, Kabuya and many others have written most of popular cries of Bill when they were young) but we all agree that he has something special since his time in the Primus ad, and them on Ingeta, and then again in Sans Poteau and now in 7jours his voice has matured and now he is able to master the atalaku style of storytelling, giving good examples and life telling situation, like in Charge (I put the hands in my pocket [looking for money] and I came out with paper) where he asks himself how could he feed his entire family without having a work even though he finished school and like Cynthia where after he advised a girl to stop fucking around, the girl came back pregnant adding to him as a charger of the family more problems, well done.

Roberto Ekokota and Tutu Caludji, do you realize how powerful this two were togheter most of their style, cries, and phrases are what most of people in Congolese music uses... This is one of the reasons I am so pissed when people see something in Atalakus who are there just to shout some name and don't even know how to sing.
This two could do a generique as well as a rumba without changing their voices, absolutely crazy

I really don't why Ferre ain't respected and known like other African artists I will always be surprised thst he is less famous in Africa than Arafat

Congolese Music / FALLY IPUPA'S GOAL
« on: August 14, 2017, 12:37 »

As I said I am in France and I had the chance to re-listen again the Album of Fally, it is fully world as you know and it is concept as a pure Pop Album made by labels: Easy songs to make and easy lyrics to sing, and even though I don't like it I must say that here in France has gain a huge success between Congolese diasporers, the difference is that Fally has took even the white and the black and the Arab French on his audience, being known even by guys of middle school and guys on the high school.
It is wonderful seeing this after the pass of Neymar to PSG with my own eyes. Fally once again has managed to achieve new heights for Congolese artist. I think that if he will do another world album only in French and with no English but a bit of Lingala Fally will be st the height of Nigerian artist or maybe even passing them.
By the other side Congolese people are starting to taking over, the most famous artist in France right now is Maître Gims so I am sensing that this will be a second golden age for Congolese music

He basically aays that hia biggest dreams is to build a school and show young guys how to play Drums, Guitar bass, Guitar Rhytmic, Mbonda and all the instruments than he is interviewed about how he became a drummer and what gave him the passiom to become a drummer and he answered that the drummer of Bob Marley gave him the vibe to start the drummer career and he said that what made him the best drummer is the fact he did a lot of work on drums and other instruments. Then he says that leaving a group for being solo is a huge mistake and should just stay in the group forever

Tour oyo toko dondwa.   (This time hear we will reign)


Elok'Oyo  a song which is a remake of the popular song by Mabele Elisi which was made by Mimi Mongo, Mabele Elisi and Mimi Mongo in fact had gave plenty of music that a lot of Congolese artist has reproduced for example Boniomai by Lacoste, the crie Mwasi ya mikuse, Eboka of Werra  which in fact is made with Renée the Chef D'Orchestre after the death of Mimi Mongo and hier of Mabele Elisi (Mabele's word) and so on.
The song of Fally is very simple and repetitive and had gain a lot of success throughout all Africa like Original.
The song meaning is simple band says that what gave Fally cars, houses success and all the love and respect of people worldwide is music, when he says we are the King of Mbonda he means he is the king of music both traditional and "world" since in antiquity in Africa especially in the central and western Africa the most powerful instrument was the mbonda since it has a structure that can make the mbonda hear meters away even though it is with other instrument, the people back in the days after long days or months of work would choose a people with great music sense and would give  him the role of playing Mbonda while on this time everybody at the start of the mbonda will dance, he is basically saying that the music he made is made for making dance the whole world's village and he is the right guy to make you dance and leave you stressless.
Le 2 Juliet biso tembe na foire is a clear reference to the Congolese Fikin which in years has lost importance but in the past was the real deal if you were a proven musician only the big guys were playing there, and in fact by that tembe na foire he means that he will bring the fire back to the fikin and when he says l'autre la anginda n'elok'oyo he means that Koffi and maybe he is refererng to other artist has got rich and wealthy by simply making music.
Very simple and clean song.
This stylistic is a traditional/one leader song, where there is the whole band participating at the video but on the song it is only the leader making the song, it is a way of song that is used mostly by ex Quartier Latin members and by Koffi himself, and it is a way to show the polivalent form of the artist and to even teach the young atalakus how to handle things most of the time is the most successful song of the album and of the other atalakus, in fact comparing the datas Selfie of Koffi got 12 million against the 2.9 of Nyataquance led by Kirikou and for Fally Original had more than 24 million views against the 4 of Libre Parcours #2, if you see things is it never used by Wenge Members, which prefer give the Atalaku chance to do all the generique even though the atalaku names rarely compares between the composer for example Lobeso had only one song on Wenge (Kata Fumbwa) in featuring with Bercy Mwana, Brigade had only one in QL and surprisingly zero in Wenge and Bill Clinton had two one in Intervention Rapide and the second in Ala Queue Leu (Style Moomberg) in Wenge can happen that leaders add a little bit of them but like a gluing piece in the art like in Se Na Se or Nyataquance or Fimbu and so on.

I am in France in these days and I can finally understand why Congolese music despite the number of listeners it hasn't spread.

Reason number 1
French people are basically very proud of their language and no matter if you are white black or arabian the only thing that matters in France is that you speak french and in fact the most listened artist are black french artist

Reason number 2
Only one Fally Ipupa and has failed to spread music Congolese like should have been.
Whit this I mean that all the guys of Congolese origin that had success are singing in French: Gradur, Niska, Maître Gims, Youssoupha.
And if you want to make Congolese music you have to make quality music and Boulman earlier and Fally Ipupa then has failed to do it national wide Boulmane because he is more French than Congolese and of course accent count and for Fally is that he had the chance with Kimame but he preferred choosing an Afrobeat/Decale/Western Africa type of beat instead of pushing the feat with Booba with a Ndombolo beat

Reason Number 3
Bad promotion and bad videos, for the promotion, it is crazy that Awilo Longomba, Extra Musica and Kanda Bongo Man are more known in Europe over Werra  and some other guys who really perform at high level on national side in Congo this is simply for the promotion, a lot of time Congolese musician fail to give proper promotion to their albums especially in Europe because this excuse of Poto is the cimitier of artist needs to stop, because I met a lot of people during this journey who likes a lot Congolese music but barely know that Werra  had a new album out barely know the existence of Je Ne Te Calcule Pas and so on. And for the videos the same there are good cameras who can make good videos but directors fails to make good videos the only guy that I have seen having good videos are Ferre with Poisson D'Avril and Fally especially with his new album and the thing that setback foreigner people (outside of Africa) to watch Congolese videos is the excessive use of various parts inside the clip you cannot focus on one guy like in Zenga Luketo where the scene were nice but there were too much staff.

She was an excellent singer

This song is out of topic, I know, but they used the Mbonda in a great way, in fact the song when it came out became an instant success setting the mbinda has a very important instrument in European music.
I dream that Alì or Zulu Mbonda had this kind of success at times, they successfully manage to handle African bondas and Trance music lovely

I heard they went solo long time ago, and Alvarito planned an album don't know about Tony but they have in common the fact they disappeared and I cannot hear anything of them in any place so what are they up to now?


Seguin interviews unless he talks bad about somebodyare boring he says Balls Due Match will go out with a little more time since politics doesn't allowed it.

Ils Faut Ekota: Unlike European and most of the African music, Congolese is structured in dances and not in songs when it comes on the generique's (Party, Catchy song) side, the fact that lead to the long length of Congolese song is the fact that for sing a dance properly like Diemba you have to take a minute or two, this is why ( more on the past them now) Congolese song are 7/8 or maybe some times 10/15 minutes they are songs made with the intention to be danced, this is why even though songs are different on the generique section you will see the same crime/dance repeated for two or three times
NABENGI YE: This is for entendres, bringing back the old style of Wenge united (JB and Werra united in BCBG) Ambulance sings in a dounle voice faking a grammar mistake on the nargez/narguez part, Ambulance, Tolbert, Sarah, Fusee and Makaba are very similar in this very related to the connections of Wenge's history
DIEMBA: Lately Lacoste has been complaining for a while since every of his musician has goon or to Werra  or to Ferrè, the reality is that Lacoste do not know how to exploit his guys, Goldberg is really a star, just check him in a live singing Diemba and see how crazy people go with him, every guy coming outside of Lacoste is a valid.musician, Iniesta, Goldberg, Eli Solo and many others are proving that, anyway going back to the crie I like how Goldberg mixed Kanyoka, Lingala and Kikongo in his cries Diemba is the Seesaw and you can see it from the dance, not really sure of the meaning but I can try to guess lime a baby is pushed on the Seesaw by his father and or his mother or some relative, Goldberg wanna be pushed by Werra  too, because the seesaw is also metaphor, since when you are in a Seesaw when you little that janitorial presence gives you stability and protection just like a Father and a Mother does I'm every situation,
LUNDI, MARDI: This crie is about the time of the week where you met friends and family and enjoy your time together especially in the African families since being all together brings joey and good vibes
MASSO... MASSOLO 'A KITOKO: For Congolese people a girl's beauty is not on her face or how pretty she is for Congolese peoe standing to Goldberg your ideal girl must have beautimess have body (with body he means having good shapes not being too much skinny like it was on vogue some times away in Europe) and to have some a... some a... some great communication lol here in the Lingala words he says masso... Like he is about to say Massoko which in Lingala it is ass being vulgar but he avoids that saying Massolo 'a Kitoko that is some beautiful conversation ability, so every time a girl passes by and wants to say she has a mice ass to his friends without making her understands he says Massolo 'a Kitoko (beautiful conversation ability) lol, you might think it is too much for a guy severe like Werra  but Werra  loves this kind of Controversy, even with Brigade it was like that so Werra  must have laughed really hard when Goldberg came with the cries
CIMENTERIE: While on the version of Anti-Balle Makatshwa To Beti Massasi Ekokota Nde the cimenterie crie was more phylo Goldberg correlate the Cimenterie to the Ass the he was speaking about on the massolo 'a Kitoko crie

Congolese Music / MBONDA PLAYERS
« on: July 26, 2017, 11:59 »

I don't know about you but I feel Mbonda Players are not very credited as guitarist, drummers, bassist, synth player, and singers, a lot of times Mbonda are silenced and even though the Mbonda is vital for both Rumba and Sebene songs unlike other instrument which are more used in this or that song, but except Ali Mbonda who is a legend for all the Wenge Members, Zulu Mbonda who is very loved by Papa Cherie, Showman Lungila the Mbonda Player of Fally and Manzaku the one of Team Wata I really don't know or have seen a lot Mbonda Players in video or credited in the song why? If they are the one who have to do more work, I mean imagine how much things a Mbonda player needs to remember, unlike Piano, Guitar , Bass and so on there aren't sheets, or people doing tutorial of Mbondas and it is very hard remember all those beats

Just listen to these songs and Isolate the mbonda part see show difficult is?

Alì Mbonda

Showman Lungila

Zulu Mbonda


I have discovered this song late and I have to say that Koffi really does know how to make music, is a song with progression and short even though is strictly Congolese in terms of lasting, the so g lead to polemics with the Kimbanguiste since some songs like Suivez Le Guide and the same Bilan are a clear attack to the Kimbanguist religion, there is a line that I don't understand when Soleil Wanga (man he was waaaaaay skinny at the time) says two times the Simon Kimbangu's name what he meant? He meant it like an attack or like some praise?
