Today I started out with a six to songs to celebrate the lives and careers of three of my favorite artists: the late Tabu Ley Rochereau, the late Pepe Kalle and the late King Kester Emeneya. What did they have in common other than being charismatic band leaders and wonderful singers who pioneered individual sounds of their own? The end of November. Both Tabu Ley & Pepe Kalle passed in the last week of November and the King's birthday was November 23.
What started off with this tribute turned into another wild and wandering program that jumped about from today back a few decades back again.
I have to say I always jump at a chance to play Choc Stars, Grand Zaiko Wawa and Minzoto Wella. So here you have them, mixed in with Defao and Staff des Leaders.
Ending up with KaRmaPa's tribute to the late Fidel Castro.
