Les Bantous de la Capitale
Formed in 1959 as Orchestre Bantou, this band's members are still performing today as Les Bantous de la Capitale. Over the course of the next year and interspersed with our usual mix-and-request programs, I'll be bringing you a number of special editions of Ambiance Congo in which the history and music of this illustrious band will be featured.
I'll also have songs from other ventures by Bantous members...Les Nzoi, Le Peuple and more.
This post is a "heads up" for these programs and an invitation to you to request favorite songs.
No need to register here, your comments are always welcome.
To whet your appetite, I include for your pleasure a song from the rare Sonafric label LP featured at the top of this post.
