Ambiance Congo: December 16, 2012

Welcome!
Welcome, friends, to Ambiance Congo. I present two hours of Congolese music every other Sunday afternoon. Here's hoping that you will enjoy the music!
Here are links to download today's program:

This time you'll hear a few LPs to start. I just bought the Ange Linaud album on an auction site.
I'm a big fan of his music and I have to tell you, the A side did not do ANYTHING for me and I was disappointed. Until I heard POINT CARRE. What a great song! The album features singers Ange Linaud, Nyboma Mwan Dido, and Asi Kapela. This is a great combination of voices that, with Nyboma, I think I have not heard before. The guitar work of Dizzy Mandjekou, Bopol Mansiamina, Marlhos and Souza is simply stunning and percussions are by the great Danialou Sagbohan of Benin and Ringo Moya. In a word: Wow! Maybe that one song was worth the price of admission. What do you think?
 
Whenever possible, I am happy to honor any request for any Congolese music. This time, you asked for Bavon Marie-Marie, Rento Vena and Emeneya and I was more than happy to oblige! I had not listened to the Rento Vena CD in a very long time and, thanks to Dave in UK for the request, the song presented here today is one of the best on the disc. You HAVE to like it!


 
You'll also hear some really wonderful modern songs, including the incredible NZANZALE by Dezai N'Accompa. Every time I listen to this album, I enjoy it more and I think this has to be one of my favorite songs for 2012. 
WRIR is an all-vounteer station in the USA. As far as I know, Ambiance Congo is the only English-language program that brings you nothing but the best in Lingala music live on radio. I'm completely stumped at how this could be, be c'est la vie, mes amis!

David, a fine show indeed. Mind you, if you’d just played the Ange Linaud track and nothing else, then taken yourself off to the pub for the rest of the afternoon, it would still have been a great show! There'd have been a bit of radio-silence but it'd be worth the price of admission nontheless.
Many thanks for playing the Rento Vena track, and all the other ones I’ve requested over the last year, it really is appreciated. Cheers.

Dave, the rest of the station's volunteers WERE off at a pub at the annual volunteer party, so maybe I should have made a CD from POINT CARRE and put it on continuous play...

Yes. Nyboma is a great singer and a very nice person as well. I have never counted the albums or songs I have or in any way summed up the joy his singing has given me over many decades.
Thanks for your comment!
