Ambiance Congo: June 25, 2017

Welcome!
Last time, I presented albums and requested songs by Congolese guitarists. Your response was so inspiring that this week I've added a few more. I've done this before (search these pages for "guitarist"to find more) and again the response has always been wonderful. In this age where a lot of new music puts the guitars and other instrumentation in a secondary position to vocalizations and synthetic sounds, I am always happy that so many still appreciate the guitar stylizations that have made Congolese music so great for so many decades.
I've honored a few requests that I did not cover last time and added song by Papa Noel that I accidentally omitted last time.
I hope that you will enjoy!
