Ambiance Congo for Sunday August 16, 2009

Welcome and thanks for your visit. It is my pleasure to have you here. Last edition, I spun a song by the regrettably obsure singer Frank Lassan. The reaction was that more people wanted to hear more of his music. This time around, I start off with a little tribute to Frank Lassan including a cut from Beguen Band and request for the song SARAKOULE. Thanks to Mesager at http://www.mbokamosika.com/ for making a few of these available!
The second part of the program starts with a song from Madilu System's last album in observance of his passing two years ago. Then NEW music from Barbara Kanam, Fally Ipupa, Werrason and Kino-Mabella. I hope that you will enjoy it, play it loud and post requests for future programs.
Here are a few covers from LPs and CDs heard on this edition of Ambiance Congo.
