I do hope to see Blaise in Kinshasa doing promo rounds for the album soon. Otherwise, it will be view as a commercial flop no matter how great the musical content is

one nice and rare thing already,the song alexandrie written by the producer of album,he gave credit to writers except himself
boss kts with makaba on lead,pire pirate with gemerose is must listen,i have not heard such arrangement on a sebene song for a while

Unfortuately, this is a practice other artists would vehemently not want to make a trend since it'd be every single song having a songwriter other than them, thus exposing them.

Damn finally. I expect this to be a 2-part masterpiece from Ingénieur Celebu

@Tata Nkiadi; I’m curious to know who you think is the best drummer the genre as seen and why.

My default answer has always been Titina because he utilizes the entire drumset all the time, whereas someone like Kakol focuses heavily on snares

My top 5 is:

Honorable mentions (I might be missing one or two great ones):
Ile de Cambodge
Simolo Katondi
Kaps Kapangala

Finally some footage of Bana Odeon. Never actually seen what they looked like or what they sounded like but seems as if every atalaku in the sun was formed there from what I always hear.

Under african skies can never be topped I dont think. Unless someone does some deep deep research on the golden years, but I doubt anyone is gonna be able to pull unseen footage from those years. Great documentary and very informative I watched it about 5 years back maybe thats why I missed the Odeon part.

Crazy how you can almost see the future of someone when they’re still child though

Maybe one day we’ll put out knowledge and technical skill together tocreate a 21st comprehensive documentary. The issue is almost everyone has a complex, so people probably not participate when they find out their rival is also participating. 

Haha this guy is living his best life. Werra should put in videos as a dancer. Sankara really dancing to the rain of the U.S. like it isn't the same rain (little bit colder lol) like Congo.

Kiekie yea, hard to really hate on someone enjoying life. I guess that’s why Werra kept him around so long

It still shocks me how a kid that young, who didn't own a guitar could be so incredibly skilled.

Some of future big names from that group like Eleison's Will Ebondaki and I believe Wazekwa's first drummer.

Took me a bit to release it, but the partitions Japonais plays starting at (1:04) is the same as what Rama Ramazani played on Manda Chante's Serbuma nearly 30 years later. Show the level of reasearch a great instrumentalists do.


Will there even be a great documentary on the genre again like "Under African Skies"? I highly doubt it... pure music was at it's peak during that time peiod.

I've listened to his albums from that era extensively and on most of those albums he gave shoutouts to Raja Kula - leading me to believe he provided artistic direction. Also, lots of Azanga's cris came from Bana Odeon & station Japan

WTF was he smoking  (2:45) Weekend mood ;D ;D ;D

Agree with archos, I dont like this generique. Its really meh.

Cosign to your sentiments. After a second thorough listen, it's just blah.... recycled formula. The clip is way too cringeworthy any way you slice it.

^ Ah, Engombi was a bad example. After the All-star "Bana Congo" album, Pecos decided to settle Europe right about the time Big Stars was imploding

Those guys had similar voices

A lot of Theo Mbala's credits online are actually Peco's work. He would've became a big name if he didn't settle in Canada early.

Both were really good. Honestly not sure who I preferred, Pecos is textbook Calugist though.

Theo Mbala

lol, he's already getting flamed for the clip direction.

The whole Wakanda Forever thing is getting real tired, even Chadwick Bosman & Michael B. Jordan are sick of it now.

Solid generique, however

Tbh, Koffi was huge in 1999, so he could've gotten a yes from many artist to do featurings.

As for R. Kelly, he has enough hit songs from his discography to tour for the remainder of his life. Until the #metoo movement can organize a boycott of venues from booking him, he'll stay float. The majority of artist make their income from touring tbh, their record label eats everything else

Nope, not even that is safe anymore. Spotify just removed all his music from any playlists this past week, along with other artists accused of assault. He made a public statement as a result because it'll hit his pockets hard in the long run. He also had his latest tour cut short because of very low attendance....

My issue with #Metoo is that people are being found gulty on on the solely basis of accusation, but I digress. Another topic for another day
