Ambiance Congo: April 17, 2016

Welcome!
This post is very late and I apologize to those who have been waiting.
Sometimes the responsibilities of life take precedence over pleasure!
The program featured here was recorded during WRIR's semi-annual fund drive, so the songs were chosen to spark interest an a diverse audience.
THANK YOU to those who did listen live and THANK YOU to those who chose to donate. You still can. Just visit www.wrir.org and click on the DONATE button to help keep these programs coming.

It is with a very heavy heart that I note today the passing of the great Papa Wemba, Kuru Yaka, Pap de Sap.
I'll be playing a number of his songs next time and your requests will make for a better program than if I were to choose all songs myself. Please use the Requests link or comment here.
I go dark on images today as a "moment of silence" for Papa Wemba.

Hi David,

No doubt you'll be inundated with suggestions for your Wemba tribute show, but if there's room left, I'd like to put forward "Ekoti Ya Nzube" from the "Viva La Musica 1977-78-80 Village Molokai Vol 1" CD to add to your playlist - don't think it's one you've spun before.

Thanks
