Congolese Music / A LOOK INSIDE KOFFICENTRAL'S STUDIO
« on: September 29, 2016, 20:57 »

707
A 2008 hot seat interview from JMK's fauteuil blanc, where usually politicians field questions from top journalists. It's amazes me how many different faces Koffi has; he's a about as intelligent as a musician can get yet he's been involved in so many scandals, which makes people forget.




I doubt he'll doing one of these again for a while, but he's built an image for himself that allows him to immune from downfall from silly scandals here and there.

Duo with Dindo Yogo


Also known as Belinda. He was meant to accompanied by Wemba to return to Zaire in 1982 to record this song and Etoile du Nord. Wemba decided to remain in Europe and Koffi went on with the backing of Langa Langa Stars under the direction of Verckys. I think it had to with growing feud between Wemba and Verckys.

His song Ouragan years later with Josky is a reworded remix of the second half of this song.

Etoile du Nord-


He sounds completely different at different points of song at request the Verckys Mateta himself who wanted Koffi become fully confident and prove his mettle by singing with different vocal ranges. From this point on (according to Verckys) Koffi became comfortable enough to go solo after a period of hesitation.

Vocals: Kisangani Espérant, Dindo Yogo, Evoloko Jocker
Soloist: Ya Roxy Tshimpaka
Accompaniment: Eddy Mabungu
Bass: Jean-Marie
Drums: Aimedo Amando Star

Ask some sapeurs what song influenced them to make clothing a religion and make their way to Lola - they will point to this song:


A composition from Strevos Niarcos (dedicated to Marie-Therese Bumba) from the first album he recorded in Europe: Papa Wemba le Kuru Yaka & les Djamuskets de Paris. Recorded early 1982 and released by Franco Luambo's label. Working with Djamuskets, Europe session artists, he left Viva in Zaire with Emeneya as the administrator for 6-7 months, but no pay.

In fact, there was little to no news from Wemba in Europe; this of course lead to speculation that he was imprisoned for not having papers, even dead. He made a heroic return in I believe July or August via Brazzaville and released Evenement under label Inza-Inter, which angered Kester and Viva members. Kester then went on to orchestrate the development of a new band with the assistance of Verckys: Victoria eleison de les Douze Apôtres -> Victoria Elesion that October.

Despite the drama with Viva - at this point became clear Wemba was one of, if not, the best vocalist from Zaire.

Composer- Stervos Niarcos
Solo-  Juva
Rhythm Guitar- Syriana & Sec Bidens
Bass- John Pepito
Drums- Patcho Star
Congas- Itshari

Congolese Music / IF ONLY SEBENE SONGS LIKE THIS STILL EXISTED
« on: September 15, 2016, 19:10 »
I appreciate good rhumbas, but there's something quite satisfying about a to-the-point sebene song. Powerful from start to finish:



The acoustic quality of this album is tops. Young Gesac was very underrated

Congolese Music / NEW(*) RHUMBA - WERRASON - MÈRE EVI
« on: September 15, 2016, 05:36 »


Newly released for that matter. Another song that was shelved (initially released privately to the donor) for a few years featuring the like of Heritier and Eboa Lotin

Nice rhumba; superb job from Eboa

I noticed some threads requesting this version of the remix (more so a remix of TH) and thought I'd upload it for your listening pleasure:

One can only imagine if he put out the type of hits he sung in WMM in his next album QQJD...

At the end Koffi plays bass

If I recall correctly, the album was actually released the week after due to a delay.

I must say I really miss the early days of Europe concerts when there were concerts by some artist every Saturday evening in some city, usually Paris. One would see flyers at CD shops and restaurants then look forward to attending on the weekend with friends. There weren't complexes of artists only wanting to play big concert halls. Any sort of polemics/drama were negligible for someone who just wanted to hear good music.

At times I wonder what would've became of Koffi had he remained Europe-centric as he was mid-1992 and the years prior. With QL it seemed he was on a mission to counter Wenge.

Congolese Music / WHAT A SONG FROM MAESTRO MAKABA
« on: August 23, 2016, 05:01 »
Parfum Sukali


An untraditional-crossover song showcasing his many talents (lead vocal, chorus, electric guitars, synthesizers, lyrics, programming, production). Superlative acoustic quality from this album (Ya ku Dominer) and this song in particular, released Fall 2003. A treat for audiophiles

Congolese Music / PAPA WEMBA'S LAST ALBUM TO BE RELEASED
« on: August 18, 2016, 18:47 »
September 30th. Rhumba na rhumba




Forever de generation en generation

717


A Skol pub, rather. Released during Koffi's fateful transition period when we knew that QL International (Fally, Ferre, Titina, and co.) was no more - a time when he was testing dozens upon dozens of young talent for what would have been the 3rd generation of QL. The rest is history...

One of the few instances we see Poupa Mystic and Mbetenge truly show their skill on a studio song for Koffi. Masterful sound engineering work from JP Kys of N'Diaye, of course. Eons better than the cut-and-paste generique on BEK.

The Chocolat chaud single, if I'm not mistaken is his first work to be completely recorded in RDC. Prior to this he wanted his albums recorded and mastered in Europe, Brazzaville (Pas de faux pas), and South Africa.

Ten years already, time flies.

Congolese Music / HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO LE GRAND MOPAO
« on: July 13, 2016, 17:34 »
Born on July 13th on a Friday; famously known in his youth Antonie Makila mabe (bad luck). He, however, found good luck in music - coming close to 40 years as an artist.
