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?
