Ambiance Congo: October 2, 2016

WELCOME!
Welcome to Ambiance Congo radio program, recorded live in USA on WRIR 97.3 FM Richmond.
I have been playing a lot of LPs from the 70s and 80s lately and today is no exception. We start with a couple of little known albums from the period on the wonderful Sonafric label and end with a couple of CDs from the 1990s.
I cannot begin to express how much I anticipate the upcoming weekend and multiple performances by Afrisa International at the 2016 Folk Fest here in Richmond, Virginia USA. This edition of Ambiance Congo features a 1980s LP track from Afrisa, with the late Tabu Ley "Rochereau" along with sax by Modero Mekanisi -who is still in the band- and absolutely delicious guitar by the late Docteur Nico. There's also atrack from a CD by Ngouma Lokito who currently plays bass with Afrisa. Tune in next time for a live interview with members of Afrisa International recorded post Folk Fest right here in the studios of WRIR!
