Diss song against Kwamy LOL.




One of my favorites. The concept is just beautiful. Listen to the lyrics for those who can.



Sad bolero





My favorite Lumumba tribute song. Franco was brave to this one during that period. Lumumbism was banned and Lumumba partisans tracked down.

Which were the songs that were considered the hits of the band in those first 2 decades?

Some of these I will add to my playlist, too. The song Fiesta, is very good indeed.

Nice piece, but it is rather a 70's tune, isn't it? It sounds newer to me than the old sound.

Never noticed these, but nice pieces. It is stunning how big the band was already back then!
