There are many good rythm guitar parts from various songs, but if I had to choose one from the many to introduce Congolese music to a newcomer, I would surely pick this one. It is 100% african in every sense:


Congolese Music / Can you help naming these OK Jazz members?

Guy Guy Fall - Côte Quest: I have this CD but had not listened to it for 10 years. So today I mined it out from my collection, and wow. I realized why I have remembered it as one of the best albums I have. But listening to it also made me sad. It offers so much more excitement than whatever the Extra clan released since 2007. These guys today are just really far from their 90's self. And it's a shame. Take these two tracks below, for example. And these are just a few of the many good tracks on the album. Not like today, when we find 1 or two on an album. Feel free to debate with me, everyone has the right to express their opinion. But mine is this.

Congolese Music / Covid 19 Tune by Jeannot Bel

Has just been released, has nice guitar parts, enjoy:

The new single seems very promising to me. He used to play some good solos with his fractions, now this one seems to be a nice one, too:

Congolese Music / Nyoka Longo's page on Facebook

It may seem to be just another page of many, but if you are a fan of Zaiko up to these days, check out the new official page of Nyoka Longo:

Why I recommend it because it is very user friendly. When it was released, I sent a message there of something I wanted to recommend to the staff of Zaiko, and they replied very kindly. I don't know if it was Nyoka Longo himself or an entrusted person, but they seemed to take my feedback into consideration, and it is possible that they will be glad to react to other requests, too. So check it out if you follow the band recently as well.

I read a Zaiko biography somewhere that mentioned an odd thing, I am not sure it is true or not: that when some former musicians, like Evoloko, who left the group in the middle of the 70's rejoined near the end of the decade, there were actually two branches in Zaiko, one belonging to Nyoka Longo, and the other to Evoloko and some others, and they released albums separately. Can you mention some albums from that time that was created by the branch of Evoloko and friends?

Congolese Music / Help with new releases please

I don't follow new releases day by day, can you please mention some that were released recently?

I have known this song for a while, but I didn't wonder it was ever performed live as well with a band. I thought is was only done for the radio, being a mostly programmed song. They adapted it to band performance quite well, though.



Do you know if this song was ever released on a recording, or it is available only in concert version?

Who are the rhythmist and soloist in this video? I don't recognise them. Ficarre?

I have just noticed it. There is a seben right at the beginning from the Etat Major album.

Congolese Music / Who was the animator here?

I wonder who was the guy doing the animation in this song? It seems to me as if I could hear him on the album Revaloriser by Familia Dei:
