Ambiance Congo: November 10, 2019

WELCOME!
Welcome to another Ambiance Congo program offering a variety of styles from different eras.
Thanks to Georges and to Anastasio for your requests!
I love playing Congolese recordings made or published in places other than the two Congos, France and Belgium. These help to illustrate just how popular Congolese music is and has been world wide. Today we have Japanese release of music by Bopol Mansiamina & Canta Nyboma Mwandido as well as an a German release of music by Marcus Mavouka.
Enjoy the program!

WELCOME!
Thanks for listening!
Today we start with some new and more recent music, then we have a few songs in memory of the great Franco Luambo Makiadi in recognition of the 30 years since his passing.
Note that we had some trouble with our equipment in the first half hour or so.
My apologies for that. Issues are being addressed!
I also played the wrong song for our friend Anastasio...we'll fix that for him soon.

Ambiance Congo: September 15, 2019

WELCOME!
Wow...28 songs today! This program of Congolese music usually features between about 12 and about 16 songs. But today's program is, primarily, music from the 1950s.
Of course, this is nowhere near a truly comprehensive presentation of the era. I just listen to a lot of this music and these are a few songs that I happened to like recently.
I wish I had added something from the Dieu de La Guitare album ( the Planet Ilunga set) of Docteur Nico and had added another Grand Kalle song. My bad.
So check out the first song for example. It's from a set called "Cubanismo from the Congo", but although there is a strong affinity with Cuban rumba, it has more local and coastal African influences. By the middle of the 50s, though, Congolese Rumba was an individual force to be reckoned with all over Africa that was also influencing music in the Western Hemisphere.
In the second hour, we have some later music by some incredibly gifted grandfathers and some other related music, then back to the 50s.
