A great show - although I have not got past the first two songs (Mif and Acacia) with their amazingly well formed sebenes. Instant happiness!
Many thanks David. Apurva from Pune, India.

DJ Daudi said...

I'm glad that you are enjoying it, Apurva! Thanks for your comment! I knew you'd like Acacia!

David, big thanks for continuing to bring AC to the wide world - another veritable treat of a show, as ever.
Love the Kongo Retro Band LP and, for some strange reason, I'm still utterly fascinated by the cover of that one. Sort of reminds me of those enigmatic mid-70's Hipgnosis-designed LP covers that graced the likes of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here. But without the pretentiousness, obviously!

DJ Daudi said...

Sorry, Dave. I don't know anything about Pink Floyd past Umma Gumma. I loved that album back when it was new and I was (I think)15. Played it every day and drove my parents berserk.

Dave, Liverpool UK said...

Hahaha. Were you trying to get someone to buy you some headphones? Set The Controls For The Heart of The Sun, indeed. Perfect example of a Hipgnosis sleeve, though.
Actually, I just realized that the Kongo Retro LP you played this time wasn't the one I thought it was (the trenchcoat-wearing time-traveller standing outside a carwash). I thought they only had that one LP so it's good to know there's more out there.

DJ Daudi said...

I had to look up Hipgnosis. Didn't know what it was. The cover of Umma Gumma was cool, but I actually preferred the picture of Pink Floyd's instruments laid out in the lane. One of my favorite album covers of all time was the Orchestre Sinza album with the green pit viper crawling under a black electric guitar on a concrete floor. You can see that here:

DeeJay...I liked the Show.

The Black Bazar 2 does not sound like it compares to the first instalment.

Maybe it is just this song.

Is it the same personel on this one as the first installment?

Merci beacoup!

Tutulu

DJ Daudi said...

Hi Tutulu. Nice to hear from you!
No, Round 2 does not have all the same people as the original. The songs are much shorter and focus on more contemporary influences upon Congolese music than the first one did. On this round, we hear influences of Bill Clinton, Koffi Olomide, francophone Caribbean music among other things. There are three or four very nice songs, though.
