Congolese Music / Re: Congovibes Lets Work Together
« on: July 14, 2019, 00:11 »
The idea is good but please don't call the channel Congovibes. It would be better if you would run it on your own channel name or title. Moreover I have already reserved the channel name: Congovibes for the forum. But if you create your own channel for it, I can place it's link and video preview in a block permanently on the frontpage, so people who visit the forum would see it, and could follow it.

To call it Congovibes, the forum staff should be included in the project or make the initiative to launch it, but we (the staff) has no time to participate in it at the moment. It would be nince to turn Congovibes into something more than a forum, that would include projects outside of the spectrum of the forum, but that would take time to coordinate anything like it, and we should adhere to more laws, that means any mistake would risk the forum.

But your idea is good and I am looking forward to the videos!

Do you still encounter the problem or it does not appear any more?

@bencuri

Those songs that got him recognition are no longer what's popular anymore, so he has to go with what's popular now. Hopefully he's still got skills as a songwriter, because he wrote some great stuff for Extra Musica:


I think it is not a matter of what the recent style is that they are doing. With Trop C'est Trop the band reached a level that was even more superior that their masters: the Wenge Clan ever did. It has exciting sebens all along, except for a few moments you cannot really get bored, and the engineering is also great. It is a high level, carefully constructed, well engineered album with professional guitar effects and vocals. With a few close exceptions, the only one like that from the two Congos. The said thing is, ever since, neither Roga Roga nor other members of the band could jump this level again. No matter if it's electronic or live played what they are doing. And I really regret that, because they clearly had the talent. Actually, now when I listen to any CD of the Extra Clan, I hardly believe they cound once create Trop C'est Trop. So much boring stuff, and so few good ideas.

In artistic quality it is very far from this one:



Maybe his new stuff is enough for Papy Bastin to stay known, but not enough for me to keep on listening to him. I could tell the same about the new albums of Roga. This is my personal opinion.

Hehe, okay. :)

The problem is if you message them the message goes to their filtered list due to the fact that we are not friends yet, and they don't get notification about it.

I want to ask something from Sonor, but it is not possible to add him directly on Facebook, nor Roga due to a Facebook limitation for them having too many friends. Want to ask a bandmate to make them reply my message.

Anyone knows the name of recent extra musica singers? I need to contact them to discuss something. If anyone could help with names it would be a big help. Thanks!

Congolese Music / New EU regulation for Youtube copyrights
« on: March 26, 2019, 23:01 »
I have just read in the news that the EU agreed on a new directive to regulate copyrights of video sharing sites, and it means bad for us music collectors. The sites will have to filter more what is uploaded. I suggest you to start downloading as much content as you can because soon even more videos can go missing.

If you want to upload in the future, but Youtube rejects the upload, try Vimeo or 4Shared. I think the latter one still has quite loose policies. Not sure about Vimeo.

Poor guy, not very happy to see him like that. His CD: Fiesta D'or is a masterpiece.

In this clip, who is that old guy appearing at 1:21?
