You are invited to listen to two hours of Congolese popular music.
Most of the program this time was from CDs from the 90s, but we have some LP tracks and reissues as well.
We start off with a song from Esperant with Papa Wemba and Viva la Musica, one that many seemed to enjoy quite a bit. I love it when the phone calls come in supporting this music!
There are a couple more songs with Viva and Viva musicians, then a killer classic by Zaiko Langa-Langa. There is also a song by Franco & OK Jazz and a couple of modern covers of their past hits. And of course, MORE!
Enjoy! If you are so moved, please post a comment or request.
