Ambiance Congo: January 15, 2012

Welcome!
This past week has been a very festive and very busy time for me, and I knew I'd have to put together a program on site and on air with no preparation. Thanks to requests and suggestions from forum members at Vibes D'Afrique and Africambiance (please visit them via links on this page), I was able to present a wonderful line up of songs for your enjoyment as well as my own! I asked for help with ideas for a celebration and our friends came through with flying colors. I plan to play the copy of this mix at home tomorrow as I celebrate my 58th birthday, so my sincere thanks go out to to everyone who helped out!
Here are some covers from a few albums.

Thanks DJ. Lipua Lipua was quite a dynamic band. I just this band could go longer than it did.

DJ Daudi said...

Yeah. Great band!
I was asked to play some Lipua-Lipua or something by Nyboma. Thanks to Geoffrey for that.
I hope that YOU liked hearing Kabasele Yampanya's voice on that song, FPK!.

Great program Sir, the Bozi song is simply superb.

Hope you have had a great birthday! Apurva from Pune, India.

DJ Daudi said...

Thanks Apurva! I had a great day.
I too love those old Bozi Boziana songs.

Many thanks David, for another great show - a fine mix of the familiar, the obscure ( well, to me anyway) and the utterly sublime.
I never heard of Klay until now but he's gone from obscure to sublime in just a few minutes. What a guy!
I think I'm going to have to track down some Afrizam stuff as well, after hearing them. (Blimey, this is going to cost me a fortune.)
Happy 58th, by the way. Viva DJ Daudi!

DJ Daudi said...

Dave, your comments are always so encouraging!
That Klay album is great. I know nothing about Klay himself, but the rest of the band is all Zaiko mambers including great guitar by Popolipo. I remember buying that album back in the early-mid 80s somethime. There were a number of African record boutiques in Washington DC at the timeand in every store, EVERYBODY was playing that record, now it has vanished into obscurity.

Great pictures, great story, great work in here, GREAT BLOG ! CONGRATULATIONS with all my respect Robert from Romania !!!

DJ Daudi said...

Welcome Robert.
Thanks for listening!

Dave, Liverpool, UK said...

David, a couple of years back you played some tracks from a then new Verckys album called Immortel (or Coup de Marteau - not quite sure which). It sounded superb and had a bit of a retro 80's feel to it. Would a track from that CD fit with an 80's and 90's themed show? Hope so. Or maybe it would be better suited to a show on Congolese comeback albums. Either way I'd love to hear some more of it.
Many thanks.

DJ Daudi said...

Hey Dave.
No themes really. I just start with what I'm listening to at the time.
I'm happy to play Verckys at ANY time!
