These videos are real gems. A reminiscent of what guitar music was like in rural areas, before electric instuments took over. And this music still can be heard at various places. If you search for more videos from the producer who published this video, you can find many others that are so great. Pepe Manuaku is a big admirer of this guy anyway.

Here is another one of this genre:

Congolese Music / Re: CD SHOPs Paris
« on: June 29, 2017, 03:19 »
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.
