Ambiance Congo: May 1, 2016

Welcome to Ambiance Congo!
Today we honor our late star, Papa Wemba, with a small selection of some of his music. There is no way to pay tribute to all of hm in away that covers everything he did, all of his bands and all of his hits. I have chose instead to play some of the great songs that don't usually make it onto western playlists, to feature some of the many great collaborations and other bands beside his own that he contributed to. I am particularly fond of the song LOMAMI with N'Yoka Longo and the late Bimi Ombale.
There are couple of your requests included as well.
