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 don't why Ben Nyamabo never released the CD version of this album he only remixed the songs (Beloti, Alube, and the medley) on the ratissage album and added new songs.

I have the Ratissage CD. Too bad they never released the videos. I've always wondered who were the atalakous on that album (especially the falsetto guy). And the drummer on Ratissage was either Papy Kakol or a duplicate. That album still sounds better than albums released today.

Congolese Music / QUESTION ABOUT BRIGADE AND OTHER ATALAKOUS
« on: October 14, 2023, 13:07 »
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?

the list will not be complete but off the top of my head without watching again,there is
1 olivier tshimanga
2 do akongo
3 eddy mabungu
4 musikasika
5 kimbangu solo
6 pitshou concorde
7 patient kusangila
8 ade lokela

Please @archo, indulge me, who did Olivier Tshimanga play for. I liked how he "atalaku'd" a whole generique with his guitare.

man....this should be archived for prosperity sake. 50 of the Congolese music heartbeat in the same room and no Polemic.....Please list the names if you know them.

Now if we could have the Atalakus do the same.....

Fourth guy tested


This guy is better than most that tested once he learns all the partitions and lead-ins.

I see Felly Tyson is still on the Team. Felly has at least 20 years in solo guitar department and his consistency should be applauded. 

Who are you picking? Felly or Japonais?

Thanks for all that you do...This forum is a big deal and maintaining it is even a bigger deal. Thank you.

Sebenes have disappeared. Generiques and rumbas don't quite make it for most people. No more transition or change of beat. Werra probably is the last to do it and we NEED another FARA-FARA type album with all current and legacy atalakus.  that was the dopest thing 21-22 years ago.

wow...I wish them well. Another problem with africa as a whole...ROADS!!!

Congolese Music / Re: CELEO TEASES HIS FEAT WITH HERITIER
« on: July 09, 2023, 11:12 »
To be honest, I'm not expecting any bangers from Celeo anymore or even with this upcoming project with Heritier. His appearance at Ferre's concert was a disaster. He was off key for the most part and did not know how to chain together his best animations to get the crowd going. Ferre had to lead him in in some parts. Another honorary Congolese Atalaku in my opinion.

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?
