Ambiance Congo: October 5, 2014

Welcome!
I've got a lot of music recorded in the very late 90s and early 2000s today. This was a very prolific period for Congolese music and a lot of new directions were tried. Yet these new directions were still focused on the classic form with adagio, mid-tempo and sebene. Check out Montana Kamenga's song, from the aptly named CD Millenium 2000, for an example. This is the school of Kofffi Olomide, but I think Koffi should go back and listen to Montana!
I have some much older, including our first and last tracks, and much newer music added for your enjoyment.

Ambiance Congo: September 21, 2014

Welcome to another edition of Ambiance Congo.
Almost no time for preparation beforehand meant lots of vinyl again for most of the program today with most tunes picked and queued on the spot while the previous song was playing! You'll find some surprisingly unlikely yet surprisingly good segues (a song by Langa Langa Stars leading into one by Jean Sylvain Goma for example)  as a result. I also ended up spinning a lot of records I've spun before, so it was hard to find and post the usual four album covers unique to every show.
I do enjoy presenting these off-the-cuff and out-of-the-box presentations, though, and I hope you'll like this one.
Requests and comments are always welcome!
