Congolese Music / I like this hommage
« on: November 24, 2023, 01:49 »
kimbangu has serious talent and so does Sarah but i fear these types of videos are it for the two of them. i don't think they ever work in a band again, but i could be wrong. maybe session music pays more than being in a band.  Is Sarah permanently living in France now?

Felly has had a good run.....

I was just listening to this generique and it hit me how talented Brigade is and how he should still be relevant but he's not. It's been a while since he released anything worth listening to. His last was the QL matchup.

Why couldn't someone of his caliber be picked up or have a successful solo career? It seems most atalakous that go through WMMM slowly just die away and that goes to show you that atalakous are not as valuable in a Congolese band setting as singers. Most singers that leave big bands also fade away and cannot maintain a solo career.

What does it take to turn this around for  such folks who leave bands. It seems like you must probably have a second job to survive if you're cut/leave a band. It is lack of drive? no sponsors? polemic with bands that could accept them?

Brandon/Diego/Liboka/Kirikou/Sabalo/Celeo (somewhat)/Lobeso/Tade/ Miel de Son etc...

Bill has been the only one that survived and continuously drop musik even if not the best quality.

Also makes me want to know if you could have a successful generique without an atalakou?

Congolese Music / Zola Tempo
« on: June 14, 2023, 21:35 »
I randomly found this today. Was this after Alpa Tchino left Papa Wemba or PW approved of this? Album came out in 2000. The struggle is real in congolese music. Bands are born everyday but they struggle to stay alive. Anyone knows much about this band? Did they have any successful hits or other albums?

Congolese Music / Kabesele For Ever
« on: May 29, 2023, 10:51 »
Just hearing this for the first time. Such a nice dedication to Pepe Kalle

I know some of the voices. Koffi, Papa Wemba, Madilu, African Michael Jackson (his name escapes me). Who are the rest of the singers you know?

Also, what's Koffi Olomide's secret? some of the collaborators on this song have passed.

Congolese Music / Does Fally need an arranger?
« on: May 06, 2023, 19:02 »
I heard this the first time on Amazon today and was surprised that he had a generique that I don't think was posted here. But I started listening, i realized that Fally knows how to kill you enjoying his generique. That slow folkore bit at the 4:01 kinda kills it for me. It's been a while since fally did a fast tempo generique and managed to mess this one up....anyone one else feels this? He probably should have started slow.....

Congolese Music / Montana Kamenga
« on: May 04, 2023, 16:07 »
I didn't even know Montana had a whole album out in 2011...Was he still not in QL at this time? Did Koffi give him the nod? Cause that's usually the problem with band leaders..quand les petits ne sont plus les petit...

Anyone knows who played the solo on this album? and the atalakou, I've heard before but don't quite know him. Besides, when cri are recycled, you kinda don't pay attention too much...

Congolese Music / I'm drawing blank...
« on: February 28, 2023, 21:33 »
I'm just hearing this song for the first time as sung by Tshala Muana, but I know I have heard from a male voice also as a cri but now I can't remember from whom. Who owns this song originally?
She left us a very large repertoire of different genres.

Congolese Music / Who is the guy next to Montana
« on: February 18, 2023, 14:47 »
Was this Defao's full band? I know Montana Kamenga and Kabose Bulembi, and Theo Mbala. Who is the other guy and did his career take of? and who was
the soloist?

By the way, the Late Defao was a very good dancer. He carried this crowd along.

Congolese Music / Celeo Scram's Best?
« on: January 31, 2023, 19:24 »
There was a time Celeo was on top of his game and had memorable animations. These two are always on repeat. Celeo can maintain on his own for a generique or two.

If you were to vote for one for the animation hall of fame which of these two will it be?

Also, Mboka Liya Burkina Faso Vs. Flamme Kapaya who played better in these two generiques?

Congolese Music / LOBESO
« on: May 15, 2022, 19:11 »
Just noticed that Lobeso has come a long way. I didn't know that he was in Empire Bakuba. He must have been in his teens when he was with them. Did he go from here to WMMM or he went somewhere in between. I really never digged his style that much but give credit for creating his own brand of animation...

Congolese Music / ? about Wenge 4x4
« on: May 01, 2022, 09:31 »
This is probably the only video I've seen so far with Marie-Paul as a member of Wenge 4X4. When did he join? When did he leave? Does he have any memorable songs with the band?

Is the guy with the shaker (in white) an atalaku? did he have cris?

I also noticed the drummer's name is Maradona. What happened to him? Titina must have taken over from him

These guys (JB, Werra, Blaise, Adolphe and all the notables) have almost 30 years in music

Congolese Music / If there were to be a collaboration
« on: April 26, 2022, 12:36 »
In a perfect world where everyone gets along, who would you pick if there to be two from  Ex WMMM and Ex QL?

Obvious choice will be Fally and Ferre.  Who will be your other two? Mine are JDT and Soliel Wanga. The harmony will be banging.

This came across my Amazon music "might like" list and I did. I like the introduction where the Fioti Fioti girls were doing their own mabanga (i think) to different artists (Koffi, Werra, Kester, JB etc..)
It was a good concert concept and showed that Papa Wemba was cool with most popular Congolese artists. Not sure if this was before his fight with Koffi or after but never the less, I liked the concept.
Al Patchino was a great atalaku.. he did others cries well.

Looking for the full video (part 1 and 2). Thanks.

Zaparo is diversifying...doing falsetto animations in the beginning....also happy to see Zaparo welcome FBI. They'll be bad together is ego doesn't come in

Congolese Music / The solo of this sebene is ahead of its time
« on: January 17, 2022, 12:02 »
Just listening to some old songs when this came on. I don't know who did the solo to this song but the fast lick which Flamme is known for is done here but in the 80s already (@7:19 mark). Anyone knows who's on the lead and is this guy LIKINGA Rédo  still in music?
