Simaro Lutumba was perhaps the greatest poet among the composers of Franco's great TPOK Jazz. He joined the band in 1961, and later became the band's long term vice president. His melancholy 1974 hit "Mabele," sung by Sam Mangwana, was a landmark in OK Jazz's "authenticite" era releases and cemented Simaro's reputation as "Poet." In the late '70s, he was one of the musicians jailed at Makala prison during Franco's most serious run in with the authorities, a clash over two songs deemed obscene. Simaro operated the band during Franco's long absences in Europe during the 1980 ;His birthday will be the march 19 , that day the big baobab will be 71 year old and 51years musical carriere . Thx for your big blog

Hello
I'm congo-brazzaville native and i'm very glad to find your blog.
Unfortunately the link for downloading songs in this post is no longer available
I'm especially looking for the song "Annie Ditsou" which is one one my preferred songs from the Bantous de la Capitale. This song was first performed just after their return from a tour in Cuba but was released quite some years later.
I didn't either find the link to your archives.
Please would you be so kind as to give me any link for this or, better, the entire album or post ?
p.s.: my mail "zouglou93@yahoo.fr"
Thans a lot
