Ambiance Congo for Sunday March 29, 2009

This edition of AMBIANCE CONGO, I'll be starting a series that jumps back and forth across the river from Kinshasa to Brazzaville and back. I do this anyway on every program regardless of any specific theme, but it may be interesting to really look at the comparisons and collaborations. You'll get to hear music from the 1960s to today. Some songs in this series will show the similarities in the progression of styles, some will feature artists from one nation who worked in the other nation, some will feature collaborations in Europe between artists from the two Congos.

This time around, please enjoy a selection of music from the 60s through the early 80s, from old style rumba to the Zaiko generation.


By the way, Les Bantous de la Capitale will play the prestigious Olympia in Paris on April 9!Check out the poster here:http://vibesdafrique.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=1&action=display&thread=1971
