Ambiance Congo: June 1, 2014

WELCOME!
I worry when I have not been able to prepare for a program, but it usually turns out OK when I just bring a crate of LPS and CDs to the studio and play it as it goes, queuing one song after another. Today's program turned out well I think.


I started off with some Ndombe Opetum & Afrizam, then a track from one of my very favorite CDs, Josky Kiambukuta's LE COMMANDANT DE BORD. What a great album. You just cannot go wrong there! New tracks by Lutumba Simaro and by Faya Tess and requests for songs by Wazekwa and Bozi are in the mix! There's also a little salute to Syran M'Benza in celebration of his birthday.

Great show David, many thanks.

Where did you find the new Simaro CD, is it an advance copy? I haven't seen it on sale anywhere but it sounded absolutely terrific, so thanks for spinning it.

The Faya Tess track sounded good too, is the rest of the album that good? That might be one to go on the shopping list.

Dave, I believe that Simaro's album is only available digitally right now. I bought it that way because I just could not wait. Bad thing about digital is you can never se the album credits. I don't know who plays on the album, though I know I hear Reddy Amisi sing one song.
Faya Tess' album is also good, but I liked her last one better. One of the best songs on this new album is pulled from the last one.
