Congolese Music / NEW MUSIC FROM JOSS DIENA
« on: October 20, 2016, 04:39 »

Six millions ya ba soucis? - Excellent remix




Joss has always reminded me of a petit Carlyto

You go from just listening to a rhumba to wanting to dance quite quickly. Internet has aged like fine wine.

Congolese Music / JUST A THOUGHT...
« on: October 18, 2016, 21:33 »
If you were to pay $20k-$100 for a song or be convinced to pay upwards to $300,000 to finance an album, wouldn't two big conditions prior to paying be "I want the work to be good" and "I want it done ASAP"?

What good is song released privately when the original goal of Mabanga was to bring recognition to the captains of industry among listening community? For example, Papito Mbala and Tesor Ngando were made celebrities in London and Geneva respectively overnight because of hit songs to their name.

There are so many financed works from most artists in both Europe and DRC just sitting idle.

Congolese Music / ONE OF THE ALL TIME GREAT SONGS
« on: October 18, 2016, 06:05 »


... one of the all time great albums for that matter. The sound is just crystal clear perfect, perfectly tuned strings and percussions with the very occasional intervention of synthesizers. Far better acoustic quality than anything of late.

Following this album, at every concert he got requests and encore requests to play Bravo Cathy.

A composition of Asta Paola
Yves Démoukoussé - Soloist (RIP)

Joli Mobiala - when I first heard this song I was shocked thinking it was Kester.
papa wemba,
Dr Djuna Djanana, père ya Matire Gims
Sébarré
Imo Lolo Iko - Lokolé
Guy Guy Toupa - Mbonda
Artistic direction of Maika Munan & Wazekwa

The lazy artist's association should make efforts to public recognize culturally significant albums of the past like other African nations; Mali and South Africa for example.

Congolese Music / SPEAKING OF "MOPAOESSE" CINDY...
« on: October 18, 2016, 05:36 »
Forgot about this gem ;D ;D ;D ;D


Maybe it's because I don't have the psyche of an African chef, but it's hard for to wrap my head around this... to sum it up, he has his wife singing a poetic love song about his wife. Too cringeworthy for me to watch the entire clip.

Related story - When I was on vacation in Kin way back in 2008, a friend of mine took me to the St. Valentine concert at GHK when Cindy was very new. I actually didn't know who she was, and thought she was just one of his Mineurs... then he gave her center mic as SOS started playing, went in the audience, took Alya's hand and started slow dancing with her.

Alya clearly didn't not want the attention nor was she thrilled to dance this girl singing one of Koffi's biggest hits. Koffi, however, had the biggest smile on his face. The energy of that concert was just off as he was still trying to regroup after the disbandment of QL International. I didn't like Gesac at all when he was in QL, and at that concert he beat C'est le moment to death and made falsetto noise.

Congolese Music / CANTA NYBOMA LIVE IN PARIS 2016
« on: October 17, 2016, 04:25 »
One of my all time favorite vocalists, Coco Nyboma will be holding his first solo concert in quite some time
 
Fellow Kékélé memeber, Wuta Mayi and Desouza as invites. Not mentioned is legendary guitarist Syran Mbenza, who will also participate

1000% BCBG to my ears... which is why I think BCBG's studio work and percussions have been subject to some criticisms after Titina's departure. Great featuring by Celebu Blaise Bula, but I always wondered what if it also had vocals by JB, Alain, Rio, Kibens, etc?

Bonus; this sums up why Titina is everybody's drummer.


This album has always been a favorite of mine because it brings together Wenge sound and (2001-02) QL sound (Bébé Kero at his absolute prime) at a time when the camps were deeep in polemic. It was also a nice extension for those who wanted hear more of Kero after Effrakata a few months after. Titina should've done more Atalakou work rather than just this album and his some of his second, Madilu’s L’eau, and Pile ou Face.

Congolese Music / ARE THEY REACHING HERE CALLING THE KINDOKI?
« on: October 10, 2016, 03:48 »
Mostly banter of course from La Bouche.  What it doesn't mention is that 46664 was Mandela's prison number or the prison bars in the background. I guess the somber nature of the poster raised questions.

Quote
Je viens juste de tomber sur ces deux nouvelles affiches de KARMAPA ouhlululu ça craint heiiiiin

Sur l'affiche on voit clairement "46664" = marque de la bête et le gars s’affiche avec plusieurs mots et signes codé exemple : (AVC) 4+4 ="V" comme la pyramide. "muluba + musuaili" ces mots peuvent s'écrire de deux façons : comme les autres mots, en français ( Vénérables Maîtres = VV\MM\) se trouvant dans la lettre "M" cette lettre est la 13e de l'alphabet et la lettre symbolique dans la franc-maçonnerie.

alors qui dit mieux La KARMAPA est-il un Illuminati ?

Signé : Lamadre El Bouche




This does raise a long standing question - why do all the artists insist on having cryptic album posters?

Congolese Music / MEMBER REVIEWS OF DEFAO'S "ANYTIME"
« on: October 08, 2016, 06:18 »

 9.5/10 - Not perfect if you're really nit-picking, but the album was well worth the almost 3 year wait. It's been on repeat for me since I got it. It's been about a decade since a Congolese album has packed a punch like Anytime. Sebene song after sebene song.

My only issue is the generique, which is not what we heard in the preview back in 2014; it's a bit flawed as mentioned in the other thread. Celeo doesn't sound like a natural tenor here. Lastly, Defao uncharacteristically does way too much mabanga. 

Excellent compositions with clean lyrics and Defao's style of having "free bass"- having Lofombo play along with lyrics rather than having a set bass line. As I mentioned in the other thread, the sound engineer programmed the mbonda to be at the same level as the drums, creating a fuller sound.

After multiple decades, he still makes a very strong case for being the best pure vocalist.

Roga Roga + Lofombo = Deadly combo. If anyone's still questioning why Lofombo is regarded as the best, listen to the sebene portion of Jigal Nzau , especially from 5:00 onwards.

Defao brings back his favorite dances from the early 90's like Chocolat niama... olia te, Woutou, Na boma bisso.

Lisuma Zazu is a nice modern take on Odemba and the song for big donor Stella Pembele is very Quartier Latin-esque.

Album de l'année, in my opinion, with Manda's album coming second (but won't be officially recognized as such because he's based in Kenya). I don't anticipate QQJTD or BDM to be released this year. Fally is currently too busy flying back and forth to LA and posing with D-List American celebrities to release new material.

Congolese Music / LOL IVORIANS TAKING THE PISS

This is was on top of the hit parade about 9 years ago. Mindless music to point where it offended people who liked conventional Congolese music; literally a song about nothing.  The main artists have since made Coupé décale style songs, but none have reached level of popularity this song had for a short while.


It's weird to go from a big classic like Ali Debs in the intro to the song itself

This is the same Kozato (dance of the the warriors) that was used by Victoria eleison in Débarquement générique
