Ambiance Congo: August 21, 2016

Welcome!
I have more vinyl for you today, mixed in with some CDs that refer back to the age of the LPs, but it's all good. I've got another old album with Dodo Munoko from Afrisa International -who will be in Richmond playing multiple sets in October at the Folk Festival.
I've been going through and finding gems I have not played in a very long time for one reason or another but enjoyed hearing again. I hope you will too! Sorry we ran out of time on that last song. If you'd like to hear the whole thing one day, please let me know!

Thanks for another great AC show, David. I loved the Djeffard track - don't think I've ever seen that LP before, or the one that closed the show. Good to hear a decent Zao track too.

You're probably sick of my recommendations for new CDs by now, but here's a fairly decent one with half a dozen or so nice tracks. The guy is called Jonas Balela (yeah, me neither) but features Defao, Desouza and Malage along with Burkino Faso, Modoggo and Mascott Katalas. And at only 2 dollars for the download, what's not to like.

Nearly forgot, another newish one well worth a listen is "Kongophonie" from Martial Prince...it has Sebenes!

Most, if not all of it, is on Youtube.

Thanks for the comments and the recommendation, Dave.
I am listening to the Jonas Balela songs. They are pretty good! Keep 'em coming!
