Ambiance Congo for Sunday August 30, 2009

Welcome to Ambiance Congo!
This time around I share with you a few songs by one of my favorite singers, the late Djo Mpoyi. Djo Mpoyi is probably best known for his stunning rendition of KADIMA with Franco's T.P. OK Jazz. You may hear that song again on Ambiance Congo today, but the first hour features him singing with Tiers Monde, Canon du Zaire and more. I was slated to play a song of his with Orchestre Kara, but a listener requested - and I played - another Orchestre Kara song instead. Great song, though, and I'm sure that you will enjoy it.

The second hour is a mix of a few other songs from artists who at one time or another were on the front lines of OK Jazz: Josky Kiambukuta, Ntesa Dalienst, Michel Boyibanda, Youlou Mabiala and others.

Here are a few album covers from this program, a program that was almost all on vinyl -rarely if ever seen on CD.


For the next two weeks, you may download a copy of the program here:
