Ambiance Congo: December 10, 2017

Welcome!
I have new albums by Gloria Tukhadio and Sam Mangwana to sample today along with a number of great older music, some of it recently reissued. I am thoroughly enjoying Gloria Tukhadio's album as it is mostly full of new songs in the classic Viva la Musica style with Alexis Azulino on guitar and additional vocals by Santa Nyanga. In the category of older records, I found in my stacks a couple of LPs I'd forgotten about. One by Bouddha Enyula Mayino that features singers Abby Surya, Joly Mubiala and Djeffard Lokombo. Another one, from Geramin Aimen, I bought years ago though I did not know his name at the time because it features Kanda Bongo Man and guitars by Denis Lobassou "La Cloche".
This will be my last program for 2017. I hope that you will enjoy it!
I will have a guest hosting this program for me on Christmas Eve, but I will do what I can to post his program on these pages.

Ambiance Congo: November 26, 2017

Welcome!
In honor of Pascal Tabu, Tabu Ley, Le Seigneur Rochereau. He passed at age 76 in Brussels on November 30, 2013 after an illustrious musical career spanning about 50 years.
Today we'll hear his music and music of others such as Docteur Nico, Franco & OK Jazz, Les Grands Maquisards, Les Bantous de la Capitale...all from the golden 1960s and 1970s when real rumba was king.
What was he doing? Who did he influence? Who were his competitors? What was that scene like?
Of course, the sheer number of songs, artists and groups of the era could never be covered in a short two hours, but I've tried to give you a sample. I hope that you will enjoy the selections offered here.

Listen here for two weeks:
