Ambiance Congo for July 18, 2010

Welcome!
An historic concert was held in Belgium on Friday night that celebrated 50 years of Congolese independence and 50 years of Congolese music.
For those of us who could not attend, I played a number of the original versions of the songs in the original set list for the concert, songs chosen and performed by artists still with us today to represent the rich history of Congolese music.
The concert was over four hours long and and I had only half that time for the program. I hope to give you here a taste of the inspiring music these artists had lined up to give their audience a night to remember. The songs here are all be songs available on CD in hopes that you will be able to get them for yourselves.
Thanks to Dr. Frank for posting the concert's playlist, the playlist from which this program has been assembled.
Thanks to Dr. Frank also for this pre-concert photo of a number of the artists present.

I've been told that the concert did not adhere strictly to the tracklist assembled beforehand
so I may not have presented the exact songs actually played.
