Ambiance Congo: August 14, 2011

WELCOME!



Welcome to Ambiance Congo, your English language Congolese music program.


I usually have a mix of older and newer songs for you and this time is no exception.

There are a couple of songs dedicated to the late Madilu Bialu on this (near) anniversary of his passing, a few of your requests and a song by Koffi Olomide in honor of his birthday.

Here are some album covers. Please note that, as I try to to play any song more than once unless YOU request it, I try not to post any album cover more than once, so your favorite may have been posted already...seek and maybe ye shall find! If not, let me know and I'll see that it gets put up here.





For the next two weeks, please find your copy of the program here:

Hello Daudi,
Many thanks for this compilation!!! how about playing Napokwa Yalelo by Madilu System? Looking forward to that...Joyce Sukile from Lusaka Zambia

DJ Daudi said...

Hi Joyce. Thanks for your kind words and for your request. I have to admit that I do not know of a specific song with that name. I only know the album with that name. I wonder do you perhaps want to hear the 16 minute medley of songs from the Na Pokwa-Ya Lelo album? As you heard, I did play something from that album this time.

Thanks Daudi...for sure I meant the that medley...had always thought Napokwa Yalelo was the title song ..thanks for the correction...Joyce in Lusaka Zambia

DJ Daudi said...

OK Joyce. That might be the original name, I do not know. The album I have is an old Kenyan reissue and on the sleeve the medley is just called "Pot Pourri Medley".
Thanks very much once again.
