Yes, you will be surprised how close the Japanese language is to Bantu. But, the lady in the Video is not Japanese, I believe she might be Chinese.
It is true for example Watanabe is a common surname both in Congo amd in Japan

  ;D Watanabe is an asian name my guy

Congolese Music / Atalaku Animation Translation/Traduction
« on: August 29, 2019, 01:20 »
Hello ndekos, was just listening to one of those compilations from kindule on youtube and I was listening to the mboshi lipassa compilation video where all his animations are gathered. From a non lingalaphone perspective, it just struck me that it’d be really interesting if an atalaku/animation verse could be translated top to finish some day to get an idea of what really consists of animation. l also usually wonder if the verse is a mix of kikongo, lingala and tshiluba or just Lingala; it’s be pretty interesting to know those tidbits of extra information as well. Nonetheless sebenes/animation will forever have a special place in the heart or all africans top to bottom. Thank you Ndekos.

Thank you for the support ndekos. I was thinking of calling the channel Congo Vibes or Les Baobabs to pay hommage to this forum where I spent countless hours. The first person I was thinking of interviewing is Modogo Gian Franco Ferre. Is there anything anybody would like to know about him, me and a good friend of mines from the forum are trying to come up with a list of good questions.

I got an idea. I would need the help of every ndeko on this website if possible. Im thinking of opening a youtube channel. Every year a legend from our music passes away and theres an african saying that goes “everytime an elder dies is the same as a library burning down”. Im thinking of opening up a youtube page to interview the legends that are still with us or the people that were close to the ones that passed to get an understanding on the great work they gave us or left us in cases where they’ve already passed. It would be an interviews in french with english subtitles because most interviews that are out are all in lingala. Everybody in Africa listens to our music and because of not being lingalaphones are never able to get the behind the scene stories.

I dont speak lingala and would do anything personnaly to be able to watch a King Kester interview where he tells his amazing story. Or even Le Poete Simaro, Tabu Ley and the likes.

I need my ndekos to help me come up with a list of the people that had an impact on our music and are still with us and are ideally either in france england or canada. Reason being logistics, it would be tough to get an interview from someone thats in KIN.

This channel would be stricly for information purposes and for music lovers. Not lookig for polemic topics, not looking for the million views. Just looking to get a better understanding of the music. If 10 people in 10 different countries watch it and like it that would be enough for me.

Special mention for noncongolese ndekos on the website; who are some people you guys would like to hear from. The purpose of the channel is to broaden the borders of our music which is already pretty global but broadening it to another extent.

Anybody that comes to mind, you guys just let me know. And im a team player anybody wanting to be a part of this team theres a seat at the table for everyone it can be a group effort.

Whats compositeur? Is it the guy working the musical / instrumental arrangements? What if he was the guy behind the extra musica sound since way back? He was playing solo and maybe even mi solo so I dont see how thats so crazy that he was compositeur

Congolese Music / Song Credits
« on: April 24, 2019, 22:06 »
Question about the background and creation of songs. Currently listening to Voyage Mboso by Wenge 4x4 which is credited to Adolphe Dominguez. When someone is credited a song what does that mean specifically. In this case would it mean that Adolphe Dominguez came out with everyones verses as well as the chorus and guided the instrumentalists to a specific melody he had in his head? Do they come up with the instrumentalisation of a song first and then come up with lyrics?

In this same case Im also assuming the atalaku comes up with his own content, does the instrumentalisation come out first and then the atalaku finds something to fit it. Or how do the guitarist and the atalaku make it work.

Also Voyage Mboso is the song that embodies Wenge the most at the peak of their art in my humble opinion do we all agree on tha?  ;D Flawless rumba part followed by an angry sebene. Best Werra vocals EVER and Roberto in rare form. Any song could be better???

Okay lets try to decipher it a bit. Lets look at sebenes before and sebenes after. What were some really good sebenes of the late 80s guys?

Did Robert Ekokota single handedly revolutionize the Sebene as we know it today? Yay or Nay ?

Congolese Music / Underrated / Forgotten Legends

Im currently listen to grand pere bozi right now checking out whats abailable on apple music. First time ever listening to him and his albums and im quite impressed. I feel like he’s one of our unsung heroes. We always hear of madilu, defao, debaba and the likes but I feel like bozi doesnt get his credit. Correct me if im wrong but was bozi one of the most popular acts late 80s early 90s and then started dying down?


Anyways who do you feel are some of our unsung heroes that you feel dont get praised enough not just on the forum but in everyday life when we’re listening to old music with our parents families and such
