Congolese Music / Congolese youngsters band (aged 14–21)

My band. I'm the one on shakers.

I am surprised the album flopped because I think there are quite a few good tracks on it.  Who was the soloist on this album by the way? Volovolo?

Volvo Lukebuka and Émile Petit Poisson Avedila

Daniel 6000 was a guitarist. He first joined several Christian music orchestras before joining the attempt to resurrect TP OK Jazz in 1996 where he played on an album (La Relève). The following year he joined Zaïko Langa Langa and played on the album Nous Y Sommes in 1998, it is the album that reveals him to the public especially with the song 77x7 in the break "Tukulanda Daniele". He left the group around 2003 after the release of the album Eureka in December 2002. He then based himself in Ireland where he became ill around 2013. Shortly before he launched his band, The Daniel Muyumbo Band.

lol so depitcho was the first to nickname himself bill clinton,then it was caludji one two years later then it got passed to didier aka kalo

Bill was wrong by saying that he started Tshiluba in animation lol. It was Jus d'Ete Mulopwe.

Wasn't it in the 1980s when the Kwata Maja cri started?

I didn't hear Jus d'Ete animating Kwata Maja. I only remember that Ekokota used to do it sometimes in concerts during around 1992-93, but it not on cd. Apart from folkloric groups and Tshala Muana, I haven't heard any atalaku animating in Tshiluba back in 1980s. Only in Lingala, Kikongo and Kihumbu. The majority of animations that atalaku's were doing weren't their creations when it wasn't in Lingala, it were just parts of traditional songs. When it was in Lingala it would mostly come from small bands.

I said it because Anti-Choc also sang it back in 1987

This was Wenge Musica BCBG's intro in the late 1980s.

5/10, I like some of the sebenes of the album, but they could have made way lot better.

I really regret Zaïko's 1988 split. They could have become the best African group of all time.

Maybe because he doesn't own the rights (JPS' contracts)

Congolese Music / Re: Zaiko Langa Langa - Live at Cabaret Sauvage
« on: February 16, 2022, 22:14 »
I don't know why but for me its always hard to watch concerts of this Zaiko-generation. I always stop after 5/10 minutes. Like it became a trend for Congolese artists to perform at Elysee Montmartre in 2007 and 2008, the way it was a trend for artists to perform at Cabaret Sauvage in 2001 and 2002.


I only realize now that Nyoka Longo is the only bandleader that had brought a ngongi-player to Europe. I remember Werrason having one who used to be in Maison Mere from A La Que Leu Leu to Temps Present, he never came to Europe the same for the one who used to play for Koffi during the Monde Arabe-era.

I usually watch concerts from that era because I grew up watching this Zaïko team. Although I place this team on the last position if I rank them.

(I do not include the current team)
1. 1984-1988: I just think it's Zaïko's best team, the singers sound like angels
2. 1975-1982: The most influential team
3. 1969-1974: Rising Stars
4. 1988-1999
5. 2000-2008

Aahnn Grand Lacs Magazine of journalist Sam Mpengo Bey. Do you have more music archives of his magazine ?

Zaiko was not like Werra & Wenge Maison Mere to start immediately with Bercy and it was a good step for them to go for Zenith. Back then people were really focused on Werrason's double Zenith and Emeneya's Olympia. Despite big support and hype from the press about their show at Zenith, it was said that they just filled 5000 of 7000 seats and the show not being sold out like that of Werrason, Koffi Olomidé & King Kester Emeneya. To promote a Bercy show for Congolese it takes like 1 year/6 months to mobilize the whole diaspora in Europe. I don't remember to hear any noise from Zaiko about promoting a show at Bercy


Unfortunately I don't have more of his articles. I got this one from Zaïko's old website.

Same here, I never saw any promotion about the concert in Bercy. Do you think they would have filled it? I think they would have filled half the hall
