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?

Congolese Music / This guy won't last as an atalakou
« on: January 08, 2022, 15:53 »
It's known fact that tenor atalakous don't last except a few. This guy (I don't know his name) has been screaming since his works in Robhino's generiques. He's still doing it. He did it in Dindology and was off key. I don't why he's not being advised to bring it down some. Fagrigas should see this. Maybe it's just me. At the 43:25 mark
Is he officially replacing Fabriga's tenor atalakou?

Congolese Music / Theo Mbala
« on: January 02, 2022, 13:00 »
Listening to some General Defao songs (RIP) and Theo Mbala comes to mind as a prolific atalakou of the yesteryears. He was fluent and had the voice and memorable animations.  I could remember it was him, 3615 Code Niawu and Ocean Ebale that ruled the late 90s and early 20s. Nostalgia.....

Does he get your vote over Celeo though?

Congolese Music / Werra's Best Vocal?
« on: December 23, 2021, 10:31 »
I've listened to this song quite a few times, and I came to the conclusion that this might be Werra's best vocal. No sharing of vocals. If he had a first voice (treble) he could just be as good as JB but he usually sings in  tenor which is not the greatest. When you compare the studio version to the live version

you can tell that studio effects enhance his voice. This song and Champion Kutula are his best vocals IMO

By the way, before Adolphe left, you would think he was the leader of WMMM and not Werra. Very dominant on stage while Werra was kinda quiet.

Congolese Music / Wengetisation de la musique religieuse
« on: December 18, 2021, 07:50 »
The thread title was a comment on Ndombolhino's Facebook page and I thought it was kinda accurate. Just based on the video, you can tell they were going for the pentagon look. Musically, fast tempo solo guitar licks in generique is the way to get people to listen and the animation at the 6:45 mark sounded like a tired Celeo. Not just this artiste, most religious groups are now full wenge style groups.

Wenge Musica has influence in current music.

Congolese Music / Fabro and Brigade: Ambiance Pure
« on: September 17, 2021, 16:50 »
Wenge will never die!

Fabro has potential as an atalaku, yes or no?
Not too many current atalakus can mess with Brigade's repertoire of good animations. Almost an hour of one cri to the next. Hope he (Brigade) shows up at Zenith

Congolese Music / THE ORDER
« on: July 31, 2021, 16:00 »
I was thinking of most of the popular singers/atalakus with memorable cries that have been through WMMM. I think I got this order right. It covers their post-WMMM popularity and commercial success

1. Ferre Gola
2. Bill Clinton
3. Heritier Wannabe
4. Robhino
7.Deplik Pomba
8. Ambulance
9. Lacoste
10. LBG Cappuccino
11. Lobeso (because he hasn't released any memorable work)
11. JDT Molopwe
13. Miel de son
14. Eboa Lotin
15. Tade

My assessment is based on what they've done over the years since leaving WMMM

What's your order?

Congolese Music / Il etait une fois....
« on: July 30, 2021, 08:46 »
They were once what Celeo and Bill are to WMMM. Unfortunately they both fizzled out and are no longer the dream team they once were. Anyone knows what they both are up to these days?

Congolese Music / Whatever happened to this guy?
« on: June 16, 2021, 11:35 »
Koko Ntiri...He is a student of Flamme's school of lead guitar. He did some very nice licks on Bill's works but has now been replaced in Bill group. Has he joined another group?

Congolese Music / ALAIN MAKABA FI SOL
« on: February 25, 2021, 12:14 »
Sometimes when you take time to actually enjoy the parts that make FI SOL awesome, you have to give it to Alain Makaba, he's more than talented than given credit for. His consistency with the partitions are phenomenal. His licks are crisp and simple but also full of tricks. He had a major impact on Wenge. His many progressions within the same generic/sebenes are quite enjoyable. I wonder why he stopped playing ...anyone knows?

Also, the Kitise la ya mate cri @4:14, whose is it? Titina or Tutu?
