Congolese Music / Zaiko - Palais Du Peuple 1987
« on: February 06, 2022, 00:49 »
I was discussing a video with Mfumu Vata a year ago or even more, and the conclusion was that the concert video I was looking for was missing from Youtube. Luckily, it has been placed back, not even long after the discussion, but I have noticed it just now. So here is it, in case anyone else would be interested. It includes very good moments from Petit Poisson:

Congolese Music / Do you know who is Ingénieur Lz?

This guy uploaded a video, but it has many errors, it seems to me these are digital errors of the capturing device when they imported the stuff from tape. I would like to ask him if he has the tape of this:

(the clip was originally posted on INA Congo channel by the Ingénieur but it has been taken down)

Congolese Music / What is this hype of Okuma Village by Roga Roga?
« on: November 23, 2021, 23:41 »
He is repeating the name of this village all the time in songs titled Racines, and he even has a video visiting it. So I guess that is where he grew up, but in the videos it seems it doesn't exist any more, and he wants to rebuild it. It seems do me as if he is talking about that Ngouabi was born in that village too. What is the truth about these things? Is this all just a legend, and that place never even existed, or it was his birthplace indeed?

I have mentioned previously in another thread that Dany Engobo has released some really good stuff recently being loyal to traditional sounds. So I was very happy to notice these days that he and Diblo Dibala is together again to record some new stuff. If Dany stays on the track, it will be something that's worth looking out for in the next couple of months.

Congolese Music / Forum outage
« on: September 04, 2021, 06:03 »
Hello everyone!

The forum had a technical error and had to be put on a break. Now things are reinstated and the board is reopened, but further maintenance breaks can be expected in the near future. Some data was lost, the posts from the 27th of August were deleted, so if you don't find  topics from that point, don't be surprised. People who registered after the 26th of August will need to register again.

If you experience any errors, please report it in this topic.

Congolese Music / Roga Roga started new chapter in his life?
« on: June 15, 2021, 01:05 »
See his new profile photo, waiting for your comments:

Anyone knows who played the solo in this song?


Zaiko has the album: Saisie en Douane, 20 ans déjà. But interestingly Nyoka Longo does not appear on it. Why? How could it happen they created a release without him? Could someone write something of the background of this release?
