Four years ago I heard this album and I thought it was recorded in Europe when they were touring. Turns out it was recorded in I.A.D. in Congo Brazzaville and Souzy Kasseya mixed in the studio Ange Music which is in Paris along with Komba Bellow who played the splash cymbal just like the Kompa band.


Congolese Music / Teddy Bukasa interview
« on: May 19, 2020, 22:42 »
For those who don't know Teddy Bukasa he was a vocalist who was in Langa Langa Stars (1982-1986), Choc Musica of Djo Nolo (1987-1988), Ngwaka Aye of Dindo Yogo (1991-1992), Big Stars (1991-1992, 1996-1998)

He sung lead vocals on Copinage and Abadalah

This Magazine reminds of me when Kester Emeneya humiliated Fernand Mabala from Congo Brazzaville on Zaire No1 that video clip is very rare.

These songs were probably recorded back in 1989 or 1990 in Belgium with original animation cries being muted or deleted along with Meridjo being the drummer. Then somewhere in 91' or 92' Ditutala and Petit Synya recorded new animation cries in the studio I.A.D. in Brazzaville the animations can be heard on the album Bakuke.

Songs Mon Ami, Mpenzi and l'Amour Est Cruel were recorded in Europe and they invited Meridjo to play the drums and it was Carlyto as it last moments. And I have a theory the band was divided with some members being in Paris and the others in Brussels.

If I remember correctly it was inspired by a Bayaka/Bamala Rhythm.

Reddy was absent during this gig plus the viva family are really enjoying themselves including Papa Wemba who's looking cheerful.

It's like he's playing the lead guitar on some keyboard.
