I believe was his first. After the release of Henriquet at Salon Olam. It's amazing to see how timid he was here

He plays solo for mama Abeti's part of the concert:

Congolese Music / THE INFAMOUS MAISHA PARK - 2005
« on: November 08, 2016, 05:14 »
Once in a lifetime shot (aside from when they were all summoned to Kabila's residence); Koffi, Wemba, & JB.


Literally every musician leader attended



In the back of everyone's mind, we knew these a number of the reconciliations were going to be very temporary. Koffi, was of course the star of the proceedings  ;D

April 2001 - Backstage Zenith:




17 July 2001 - A day before his sold out Lincoln center show. I gave a few QL members a little tour of Manhattan and we ate at McDoos (McDonalds), which they preferred over an African restaurant.



Effrakata studio session:


A year earlier at Bercy. Pictures taken by a friend. I still regret not making it:

Congolese Music / MY COVERAGE OF FALLY'S NYC SHOW
« on: November 06, 2016, 07:00 »
This year the concert took place at Symphony Space, which is a big upgrade from the music clubs of previous years.  It slightly smaller than Olympia, but it's a seated venue. I was given front row seats, a benefit of being a friend of the concert organizer, but that means nothing when people get up and start dancing.

Sound was good although solo guitar was not very inaudible. The older vocal lineup selected for the tour is good, but they just lack the energy and dancing skills of few left behind in Kin.

Things started with a local DJ playing mostly Nigerian music, which I found quite odd being it's a Congolese concert. But this shows the current state of affairs in African music. The concert was scheduled to begin at 8, but you know how we Africans are...  I must say compared to other artists, Fally, by far, attracts the most attractive female fans.

Excuse my amateur camera skills, I had to manage the crowd surge and my Misses telling me to put my camera down.

Song selection was predictable: his world hits like Sweet Life, French Kiss, Original, Libre Pacours  #2, and his big rumba hits like Amour Assassin & Service.



^ Apologies for poor sound quality on this particular clip.







Ile de Cambodge, wow...  he's still as explosive as he was when I first saw him live during the Effrakata era. Without a doubt the best drummer in DRC at the moment.





Felly Tyson, it's like could play solo in his sleep; he so skilled and calm. It was a real treat to see him live once again.





Gi Garry Iwele with the camera:


A preview of an upcoming Générique:


Ambiance:






All in all, a very nice show. It's nice to see when artists become completely comfortable performing and genuinely have fun on stage.

He makes it seem like Werra is preparing another Kibuisa Mpimpa with the upcoming album.

One quickly releases why he decided to become a "pastor" after a short solo career:



His QL-esque song with Koffi-like vocals:


However, like Depitsho he's good dancer:

I think he was drunk here with a beer bottle  in back pocket

Congolese Music / LADY ESOBE INTERVIEWS EMENEYA
« on: October 29, 2016, 21:49 »
Kester had trouble holding it together  ;D. Esobe was making a mockery of the journalism style of all the big journalists at the time, even down to the facial expressions and how they pretend  to pay close attention before cutting off the interviewee to add their opinions.

Mulos Cantos at the beginning animating

Concert ya suka Emewa! (4:30)
