Ambiance Congo: November 12, 2017

WELCOME!

More vinyl than not today.
Great music from the 70s to around 2000.
Starting off with a wonderful track from Grand Zaiko, a request for one of O.K. Jazz's wonderful songs and a couple of "different versions" of classics by Les Bantous del la Capitale and by Afrisa International that I haven't played for you before and maybe a song or two that you may have never heard until today.

Ambiance Congo: September 17, 2017

Welcome!
This program is is a presentation of songs from albums by Congolese saxophonists or from singles, LPs and CDs by bands that feature the sax with some wonderful and sometimes unique riffs. This is, of course, a program that could easily be continued or extended. Only the surface has been scratched!
Thanks for your requests, especially for the songs by Jean-Serge Essous and by Negro Succes with Moro Maurice Beya. The songs by Sax Matalanza, Empompo Loway, OK Jazz, Le Peuple and Le Canon du Zaire have some of my favorite extended saxophone / guitar interplay.

WELCOME!
Welcome to another Sunday afternoon of Congolese music from WRIR 97.3 FM Richmond Virginia USA.

I hope that you will, too.

Ambiance Congo: August 20, 2017

Welcome!
Last time, I played a song from the first TERRE SACCRE CD. That CD has a song by Casimir Zoba (aka ZAO) that really like. I was going to spin that this time, but recalled how much I enjoyed his 2012 CD called L'AIGUILLE. So I started with a favorite from that instead. The ZAO song reminded me of a song by Fidele Zizi, so that follows and I ended up spinning all songs by artists from Congo Brazzaville and it ened up being a pretty good collection of songs. Alert: there's also a song from Dizzy Mandjekou's SAILA album, by request, in honor of his birthday.
