Congolese Music / This guy understood how to do it
« on: May 09, 2020, 10:46 »
When you go to a party you want to dance and have fun..I think this guy just did that at this wedding. He only played fast tempo generiques and knew exactly when to cut in with something new and the songs he knew people would react to. Lots of shoutout to old school music...I would like that one day..

Side note: I watched all 30 min of it. Not a single Ferre generique..I guess the jury has reached a verdict on Ferre G's Generiques... ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Congolese Music / The beat goes hard ...BISOU

Le Vieux Awilo still got it, but less than 2 min though?

Not sure if this link has been shared here before. By far this is the best internet radio for Congolese music. it plays 24/7 and has a large repertoire of music from former greats to current greats.

if you have other valid links, please share. Thanks.

Congolese Music / SARA SOLO
« on: March 11, 2020, 17:31 »
Did she take part in Formidable? Do we know what songs she played solos in? Is she still in WMMM? Things have been quiet lately with that group....just curious..

Congolese Music / AMBULANCE....
« on: September 08, 2019, 12:54 »
Is Ambulance back? This was posted Sept 02. I didn't see Jamaique on this one. Wenge MMM is quite unpredictable if these atalakus are coming and going just like that. I saw Liboka also....

If Ambulance is back, does mean Bercy made him leave Heritier already?

Congolese Music / EVER BEEN TO LONDON?
« on: February 23, 2019, 12:42 »
This song is about breaking your back I like that people all over are catching the fire...but I don't see much backbreaking here. But the real question is have you ever been to London (at the 5.20 mark)  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Congolese Music / FROM ACROSS THE SEAS
« on: January 06, 2019, 15:21 »
This band, SOUKOUS EXPRESS did its thing in the 90s. It took me a while to know that these dudes were Antillais. They ranked in the Dr. Sakis, Dany Engobo type soukous , but regardless they stuck to soukous instead of Zouk.

Is this what is commonly called Culture reappropriation?

Does anyone know who their soloist is?

Congolese Music / FALLY'S INFLUENCE
« on: December 16, 2018, 11:06 »
Except for Extra Musica whose Etat Majeur was vastly used in choreographies, Fally has the most copied choreographies of all modern-day musicians. Just about all of his generiques are covered in choreography. Original was big when it came out, now this also has a followership. His music may not always be catchy but his dances are widely known, which invariably makes him more popular and a commercial success than others.

If I'm wrong enlighten me... ;D ;D ;D ;D

Honorable mention: Rosalinda "Break your back" is also doing it....

The woman in traditional clothes killed it at number 10, then number 6. Yours may differ...

Congolese Music / Any information on this generique?
« on: December 02, 2018, 11:50 »
Just wondering if this is part of an album in the works or just a maxi-single? either way, Jamaique will shine.

Impatiently waiting for this. would be nice to hear Jamaique in a studio version of his works. He's quite flexible with his voice. I just hope he doesn't get burned out doing all the work while others are slacking.

Congolese Music / Not quite there
« on: November 06, 2018, 21:13 »
I think it's safe to say Rumba is Fally's bread and butter. I checked out this generique and it just doesn't have it. The solo leading into the generique didn't quite blend with everything else. Lengthy keyboard chords, Identite almost off key and other atalakus missing when he has like 500 of them. Last two minutes was like Power 001 all over again......Basically, a space filler. 5/10

He needs to go back to the Droit Chemin style of generique.

Congolese Music / One of the best covers of Kalayi Boeing.....
« on: October 09, 2018, 19:12 »
Very good cover. I played it more than once. I love the transition to sebene..the mi solo was on point and Kirikou tried....Vieux Koffi always has something up his sleeve...

Side note: Can we embed facebook videos?

Congolese Music / WMMM Instrumentals....NICE!
« on: September 23, 2018, 13:41 »
Nice collection of WMMM tunes. One of the best instrumentals out there. Anyone knows the soloist? Very polished. The drummer also is on point. No breaks. Well coordinated. Nothing like seeing multi-talented musicians at work. Werra should be happy that his work is keeping the music world going

Congolese Music / DID HE EVER MAKE IT
« on: July 19, 2018, 18:15 »
I stumbled on this just recently. He was a prodigy in the making and looked like he would have made the WMMM roster (although he needed some work). I wonder what happened to him. Maybe he was discouraged. Anyone knows?

I listened to these guys since they first came out. They were the best at using keyboards Africa ever produced

Wale Badru (Benin) and Woya (Cote D'ivoire).

Ambiance Facile was a club jam back in the day....What are your other favorites?

« on: June 30, 2018, 15:20 »

I remember seeing him for the first time the repetition video and I was quite impressed with his energy. He looked promising but since the video below, he'd disappeared. I know the older atalaku is with Heritier. I think his name is Vegeta

I wonder what stopped WMM from poaching him since they snatched Diego from Wenge Tonya Tonya.
