Ambiance Congo: May 17, 2015

WELCOME!
Welcome to Ambiance Congo, your English-language radio program of all Congolese music.
Today I have for you nothing but older music, the favorite genre for most listeners. My favorite as well!
I've got Franco & T.P. O.K. Jazz, Johnny Bokelo, Papa Wemba, Choc Stars, Le Peuple and a whole lot more. Most of the program was pulled from original vinyl, though there are a couple of gems, like the killer track of Orchestre Makinaloka, that came from CD compilations.
I hope that you will enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed pulling records out of the crate and queueing them up and spinning them for you.
You may download the program with track list here:

I just found your blog. Many thanks to allow the download of your broadcast.
I'm from Belgium and like to listen congolese rumba since late 80's. At that time, there was 2 hours of african music ( a lot of congolese music ) every friday on a national radio channel. I used to listen zaiko langa langa, emeneya etc...when i was only 10 years old.

Merci papa daudi !

Hi David,

Don't know if you already heard, but it looks like Congolese music just lost another star-
