Congolese Music / Guy Guy Fall was also a good atalaku

He did also session work for Soukous-artists like Alain Kounkou. But many credit all those work to Ocean Zibankulu, because their voice sounds almost the same.


The way he played the Zebola-rhythm from 0:16 until that 0:21 min, sounded like everything came to a halt.

I don't know why but the way he played here (0:13 min), made my remind of Ivorian music (Maybe because Ivorian people copied the way of how Durrel Loemba played rhythm in Extra Musica on the first years of Coupe Decale).

The start of this song made me remind Ndombolo Ya Solo of JB Mpiana, Zaiko and Kongo-folklore.

Congolese Music / RIP Loris la Congolaise

Werrason managed to perform in Brussels, after seeing his two concerts in Paris getting cancelled by combattans. There was that day big security from the police in Brussels. But the concert was a big mpiaka, because the combattans were blocking people to not get inside the musichall. After the concert, Werrason decided to talk with the "Bana Congo" in Brussels and after that they made peace and he was allowed to finish his tour and the ban against Congolese artists got lifted.

Do you remember when they blocked JB Mpiaan & Wenge BCBG in Abidjan for hours at the airport and were about the forbid the concert and Congolese music in Ivory Coast. It was back in 2000 or 2001 after TH. I don't know if the concert still took place.

If I remember well the year after it they forbid Congolese music in Cameroon and Mali, claiming that it was obscene and that it didn't educate. But they then caught politicians listening to Congolese music in the car, lol. Not long after it the ban got lifted.

Congolese Music / Does somebody have this rare album ?

Posted on Claude Mussay’s facebookpage.

He (Adrien) and his brother Papy Mukiadi produced Maison Mere’s double album Temps Present "Mayi ya Sika" volume 1 & 2.

Looks like he focused the promotion of his album more on the African English speaking countries, the West Indies and the African diaspora in France with the 4 generics and one coupe decale track he made on that album instead of promoting the also very heavy in Kinshasa and letting those ndombolo/rumba tracks also being promoted. But atleast he got nominted by the Kora Awards and toured around Africa and Surinam. It's a shame that there wasn't an album that followed 2/3 years after it.

There was a singer in his band, who's voice sounds like a mix of Soleil Wanga and Fally Ipupa.
