Ambiance Congo: May 24, 2009

This edition is almost all music from the golden 1970s and 1980s. There are a couple of newer songs added that fit within the mode, music from artists who made their marks back then and have been making great music up to the present: Youlou Mabiala, Dona Mobeti and the artists of OK International.
I hope that you will enjoy listening to this program as much as I enjoyed presenting it!
