There is a great good quality tool online that lets you separate music files to instruments. I tried other ones before, they did a bad job, this one is very good however. Of course, quality comes with subscription only, you need to pay for it. By accident, I found a hack to be able to use it free. Anyone interested? If yes, let me know and I put a description here.

General / Donate for poor people in Congo
« on: November 10, 2023, 00:26 »
There is a charity group that is running a campaign on Gofundme for helping poor people and kids in Congo. I know the girl who is the boss personally, this is a legit thing not a fake fundraiser. If you feel like support their campaign, even with just a few dollars:

I remember there was a discussion here or somewhere else about where sebene came from. Apart from who says what, today I found some interesting addition to this topic, wondered if you noticed it already.

By accident Google showed up an LP for me in the search results today, one that I never heard of yet: the title is Kasongo! and it is a record from 1957 from East Congo. I was surprised to see on the back, that next to the songs the genres are also listed, and some songs were marked as: Sebene. I thought WOW I need to listen, firstly because rural recordings are not common from those days, secondly because it even has sebene music, and I was surprised it was already an acknowledged genre at that early age of Congolese music. And very interestingly, the songs sounded as I expected from a sebene or something similar:

Congolese Music / New outage
« on: August 18, 2023, 21:30 »
Sorry guys for the new interruption. I am having difficulty finding a proper server recently for our forum. Every time I subscribe somewhere, it reveals along the way there is a glitch with the subscription and I need to suspend. The forum is not in danger, the issue is only about where the forum can be run. Hopefully this recent one will do, but I cannot guarantee anything. If anything happens, this is the reason you need to think about when you see the forum is temporarily closed. I'll try to bring it back as soon as possible.

If you find any errors and issues, please report it!

Sorry again, thanks for your patience!

Congolese Music / Welcome back!

The two have just had a concert together in Kinshasa. Very interesting when you consider from the big 80's line up he is the only living singer besides Nyoka Longo.
