Ambiance Congo: August 26, 2012

Welcome to Ambiance Congo!
Every other Sunday afternoon I try to bring you an enjoyable mix of many different genres and ages of Congolese popular music. I love this music -it brings joy and ease to just about every part of my soul and body. Every other week, let us see if I can show you why.
Today's program is a nice mix, compiled live in the studio, that I hope will keep you dancing, that I hope will keep your mind engaged, and that I hope, as with every program, you'll want to listen to again! In choosing recordings to bring to the studio, I found a few old requests that I had missed and are presented today. I also rediscovered this wonderful CD by the Belgium-based group Black Story. I've been playing that disc a lot ever since!

David, thanks for another cracking AC show - who could possibly fail to find joy listening to a couple of hours of music from the Congo?
Thanks for playing another track off Epoque Coloniale - I remain utterly convinced that you possess the only known copy of that disc anywhere in the world!
It was good to hear some more of Wenge El Paris' K.O DEBUT CARTE JAUNE - surely they're the most musical of the Wenge incarnations.
By the way, where did you discover Nouvelle Serie - Procureur? I love these jewels that you're rescuing from bargain bin oblivion!

Thanks for your comment, Dave.
Epoque Coloniale was sent to me by a fellow DJ in Europe. I have not seen it anywhere either. Yes...the Nouvelle Serie CD came from a bargain bin!

Hi David, could you please play "Bondoki Na Boniama" by Mayaula Mayoni while still with TP OK Jazz? Thanks,

Your keen listener from Dallas, Texas

You bet, Texas! I'd be happy to.
