Lorraine, a local listener, commented that she'd like to hear another program dedicated to the vocal talents of Congolese women. You may hear the first edition of the series here: http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/program/40676
Merci mingi, Lorraine!
So here you have it. Two hours of female vocalists in many styles of Congolese popular music.
Some great hip-swinging tracks and wonderful sebenes are included!
Here are album covers:
Got to love the ladies! There are soaring vocals and sizzling guitars. I love the South African bassline in Yondo Sister's song. It underscores the Pan-African appeal of Lingala music!
