Congolese Music / Re: CD SHOPs Paris

I can help you buy any CD online and can send it to you, but you need to search for it. Recently, the number of online shops decreased. Paris based shops may have some stock, for example Lampe Fall, that is a very good shop. They sell some older stock too, though not as many as Village Afro in the past.

This sounds different to me than the ones you posted before. Never heard of them either! Thanks for sharing!

Old School Music / When Sakis was a good boy
« on: April 26, 2017, 23:27 »
I have a friend, and when I listened to the early album: Salamalikoum by Sakis, he told me: "Oh, this is from the time when Sakis was still a good boy."

So I titled this post with his definition, to intorduce you the song below. It is Yoka Lolembo. A nice rumba tune that I found on his album: Let's Go to Dance from, 1987, when he might still have been a good boy. I have just managed to get hold of this record. The song is a proper rumba, with very nice guitar parts in the style of Bongo Wende, though it is written it is not him who is playing, that made me surprised anyway, but well... And I like the vocals too. All in all, a very well arranged song with nice melodies.


Not surprised that most titles are from Trop C'est Trop. One of the best Congolese production ever released.

And regarding this event let me commemorate all members: please keep in mind, that non music related posts should go in the 'Other' section.


What I am not sure about, did Nene join Minzoto before or after he played in Langa Langa Stars? Do you have any information on that?

Nice pieces!

By accident I didn't notice you posted the video of Le Capitan. Very nice song. I love these, I am archiving them constantly. Especially Super Mazembe.

Congolese Music / Re: Separation in Congolese music

OK Jazz - After the death of Franco particular members, like Mabiala, etc. tried to declare themselves as the inheritor of the boss title. But leadership was given over to Simaro Lutumba. However, in a short while, the relatives of Franco who were the inheritors of the band legally, started to spread gossips about him that he is leading the band unethically. According to rumours they were encouraged to do this by Madilu. So in the end the group was disbanded, and a bunch of its members formed Bana OK, to save themselves from debates.
