This was the time I used to polish JB Mpiana's shoes and water his gardens at his home. TH was literally in my blood and I used to hold all of his CDs, DVDs in my arm pits all day long. Now all that has fizzled out in thin air. How things change.

Wow ok, this a must watch

Kiekie, pretty soon Ado will run out of people to interview because many leaders don’t want to be interviewed by him anymore because of the hot tea recent interviewees have spilt on past events

I always find it difficult to differentiate between solo and mi-solo guitar in a song. Ramazani explains the two in simple terms starting at 12:30. Very insightful interview.

@Matebu

The acoustics of the drums on Mohammed Kaniasy were great, why didn't you like it?

@mvulusi96

Did Motingia Tunga ever play bass on any albums for Koffi, aside from Wake Up with Wemba?


No because he only spent 4 months or something like that in Quartier Latin. He joined 2 months before the last recordings of Loi, but Koffi prefered to take Pathy Bass and  Binda Bass instead of him. I don't know what happened between both guys. Maybe there was a problem or he had difficulties to adapt to Quartier Latin's style which I don't believe or he was maybe skipping rehearsals which Koffi hates. After that he rejoined Zaiko quickly and became the thrid bassist behind Oncle Bapius Muaka and Rocky Blanchard. Blanchard made a big mistake of rejoining Zaiko. I think that he regrets it until this day.

Hahahaha just because Burkina Faso left they only wrote his last name (his real name is Vincent Kasongo).


TH is an excellent album, but I don't like the drumsound of the generique and Mohammed Kaniasy

Man, JB used all the top Paris studios of the time for TH - I wonder how much the studio time cost

Always interesting how almost all the albums of that era had the technical backing of Ambroise Mvoundi and Philippe Guez (also for other albums Manu Lima, Maestro Souzy Kasseya,Djujuchet, Rgigo Star, Sec Bidens, & Maika Munan). Those guys were masters of great acoustic quality
