Congolese Music / Maitre Gims Documentary
« on: September 27, 2020, 02:05 »
Just finished the netflix documentary on Maitre Gims. It gave me a lot of insight on the person that he is. In the documentary it said that Djuna Djunana was close to
The Mobutu regime in the 70s and 80s but did a song against the regime in 88 and therefore had to runaway to France with his family. Has anyone ever heard that before or does anyone know what that song might be. Also I was surprised to find out that Maitre Gims was homeless in Paris during his late teens and his father that lived in the same city had no idea. That shocked me and really pierced my heart. While his dad was playing the perfect dad with his other wife his mother was struggling

Congolese Music / Under the radar albums
« on: August 16, 2020, 04:04 »
We all know of the more famous albums from the more famous members or ex-members of our beloved groups. Wanted to highlight those albums that go under the radar maybe due to the fact they didnt get enough promotion or the timing at which they came out.

Manda Chante with the album “Je suis” that came out in 2016. Never heard of this album until I randomly fumbled on it. First few songs are okay but the album really hits another dimension starting with Comme Toujours. The following song Socrate is for me the highlight of that album and is followed by 3-4 great songs. All in all I believe it is a very successful album musically speaking.


Also wanted to speak about Celeo Scram with the album “Ici c’est Paris”. I dont remember hearing about it at the time it came out but randomly stumbled upon that one as well and was PLEASANTLY surprised. My favorite songs on there are Wenze ya Minzemba, Amour Chinois and Ambulance.


What are some underground or under the radar albums you guys would recommend ?

Congolese Music / What language is this Bozi Boziana song in
« on: July 26, 2020, 13:51 »
What language is this Bozi Boziana song in? Starting around 3min mark I notice that its not in Lingala no more or at least doesnt sound like it. Wondering if that was the Mongo languange or maybe a Kongo language perhaps but I doubt that.

Yes, you will be surprised how close the Japanese language is to Bantu. But, the lady in the Video is not Japanese, I believe she might be Chinese.
It is true for example Watanabe is a common surname both in Congo amd in Japan

  ;D Watanabe is an asian name my guy

Congolese Music / Atalaku Animation Translation/Traduction
« on: August 29, 2019, 01:20 »
Hello ndekos, was just listening to one of those compilations from kindule on youtube and I was listening to the mboshi lipassa compilation video where all his animations are gathered. From a non lingalaphone perspective, it just struck me that it’d be really interesting if an atalaku/animation verse could be translated top to finish some day to get an idea of what really consists of animation. l also usually wonder if the verse is a mix of kikongo, lingala and tshiluba or just Lingala; it’s be pretty interesting to know those tidbits of extra information as well. Nonetheless sebenes/animation will forever have a special place in the heart or all africans top to bottom. Thank you Ndekos.

Congolese Music / Re: Congovibes Lets Work Together
« on: July 13, 2019, 20:09 »
Thank you for the support ndekos. I was thinking of calling the channel Congo Vibes or Les Baobabs to pay hommage to this forum where I spent countless hours. The first person I was thinking of interviewing is Modogo Gian Franco Ferre. Is there anything anybody would like to know about him, me and a good friend of mines from the forum are trying to come up with a list of good questions.
