Congolese music needs new artist and those new artists need to be pushed, thats what brings fresh blood and creativity. French rap has bout 10 new artists per year same with us rap. In the last ten years we’ve had innoss b gaz mawete mpr rebo but na filet . How can music genre evolve with 90% of the industry being people that all have 30 some years in the game

Congolese Music / Re: Wenge Musica Aile Paris

Although Molangi ya Malasi is Ricoco Bulambemba's solo album, I prefer it above Nganga Nzambe. Its has that old Paris-sound, mixing Soukous with the authentic Congolese music-genre, which is quite rare, while Nganga Nzambe is a copy of Victoria Eleison mixed the old Anti-Choc stye.


Molangi ya Malasi is magic, like Matebu, Proclamation, Place Vendome, the song Molangi ya Malasi (due to it's videoclip), gave many youngsters the desire to come to Europe with the song Mundele Ndombe, Ricoco describing the trip from Kinshasa to Paris and the Paris-nightlife at that time. Ricoco dedicated a song to God in the song Nouveau Testament.





Nganga Nzambe is not bad, it's also an excellent album like Molangi ya Malasi. But it's like Marie Paul, had to cry all his pain out. Because almost all songs are betrayal in love. In the song Fidelite sens Unique he sung against Wenge 4x4, who betrayed him in his opinion. It made Wenge 4x4 mad and they recorded Le Monde est Mechant as reaction. My favorite song in Nganga Nzambe is Dernier Sommeil d'Amour. Nganga Nzambe is normally Marie Paul's solo album, but his gave lead guitarist Zing Zong the opportunity to put a song, which had Jus d'Ete Mulopwe as lead singer.





Nganga Nzambe did it well, but it's the trip to Kinshasa the same year and the remix-album that boosted the album more, because Molangi ya Malasi was first still dominating it. It could have been different, if Ricoco decided to go with them to the trip instead of changing his mind after getting influenced by his "mpangi ya bwala" Aimé Buanga.



For there's no album of Wenge 4x4 that comes close to Kin E Bougé, which is recorded with only 9 musicians. That album changed everything and is revolutionary on many aspects. But I prefer Molangi ya Malasi over it.



Thats exactly how I feel about it. Its my favorite outta the 1st wenge generation for sure sonically. I understand Wenge 4x4 had a much greater impact culturally but sonically that album is immaculate.

Wenge 4x4’s rumbas just never do it for me. Honestly i know its a hot take but id take a lot of peoples rumbas over 4x4. To me the only reason why wenge became what it was is because of the sebene parts thanks to ekokota

Kinda wish it was a more famous artist and not underground/alternative act. Seeing Koffi or Fally or even Ferre there would have been dope in all seriousness. Who cares if they woulda talked bout it for 10 years. These artists put their entire life into the music if they catch a blessing so be it we should be happy for them and our culture as a whole instead of saying thank god it wasnt them we’d never hear the end of it

Congolese Music / Wenge Musica Aile Paris

Am I the only one to this day that still thinks that Molangi Ya Malasi is superior to every other Wenge Musica 4x4 albums? I think sonically their musicians were better and also think they had way better vocalist. I’ll take bula mbemba and roi pele vocally over jb and bula.

Also feel as though Wenge 4x4 was more pop and Aile Paris was more authethic especially when it comes to Rumbas

I’ll go a step further and say he’s the reason wenge is what it is today

Are you sure ? Im in the states and no one here knows who Papa Wemba is. Does the average white person know who he is in England? Because lets be clear the world music is not for black people its for the whites. The average guy in Mali is gonna pick a real wemba album before he picks a world album and same with the guy in burkina faso and the guy from senegal. Hell the only song of Wembas thats made it into a french movie (Black Mic Mac) was not a world song but i believe it was Matebu or Proclamation.


I personally think foreigners like authentic stuff more than the stuff thats catered to them. Ive bumped into people in the states here, white people, that knew Franco. Franco never did world music his music was authentic. And last point, nobody knows emeneya outside of the congolese diaspora. His world endeavors never helped him i dont believe. He was barely talked about in france by the press and when he did it was the middle of the ndombolo era and the average american or english white person has NO idea who he is trust me. He’s only a world artist to congolese.


The world album is just so they can sit in front of the french TV press and have more ease to talk about the music. Dilute it so its easier on the new listener, which just never works, sorry to say.
If someone is gonna like congo music or stumble upon congo music are they gonna prefer Tokoss or Control, be real.

Congolese Music / Sens Interdit

Was Sens interdit by Ferre the best generique made post 2005 by anyone

I wish they would give it a rest with these world albums. Nobody wants em. Not the people in Kin not the people in london brussel paris. World albums from african artist rarely work and when they do they never captivate the grassroots fans. When has this technique ever worked??? Thank god Koffi never had a world music period and because of it has the best catalogue to this day. Those world album really dilute your discography.


Did that technique work for Papa wemba ? Did he really need that? Or was he still gonna be famous is europe without those albums.



If anybody is on FERRE’s staff please tell him to abort mission on the world album. The boy’s catalogue is a sans faute so far it’d be a shame

Congolese Music / Re: EXTRA MUSICA ZENITH 2001

Well said Archos.

For me its not so much about whether Extra Musica  was "better" than Wenge Musica because I know that's highly debatable and I personally don't agree with that assession. But to say that not a lot of people know any Extra Musica songs or to say they are overated is being biased as well as being economical with the truth.  Like I said the only reason perhaps many Kinshasa people don't highly rate Extra Musica is because they are not Kin based and are seen as Wenge copy cats. I believe if Extra Musica was a Kinshasa group, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

100% agree. If Extra Musica was from Bandal or Yolo i think they would have gave Wenge 4x4 a run for their money. The thing is that the kinshasa public is very tough with non-kin based groups thats why a lot of groups from kin based in europe struggled a lot and thats why theres no major groups from any other cities but kin. Very tough public
