Ambiance Congo: January 19, 2020

WELCOME!
Thanks for your requests!
Starting off with some wonderful classics from Sam Mangwana and from Johnny Bokelo.
The Bokelo is followed by a requested song by Grand Zaiko Wawa...a song that makes surprising references to Bokelo's SANDOKAN.
On top of that we have some killer requested songs from Bozi Boziana and from Papa Wemba. Both of those kept me dancing in the studio.
I hope that you will enjoy the program!

Ambiance Congo: January 5, 2019

WELCOME!
I am posting very late this time as I've been extremely occupied with work.
But here it is, the first show of 2020.
Thank you for your requests! There are a few of them here and I hope to hear from you for more in the future.
Evcery once in a while I "rediscover" a real gem and the album FIN D'EXIL of Reddy Amisi and Stino Mube is just such a joy to lasten to!
I was excited to get a new ARTICLE 23 double album from Felix Wazekwa, but I was very disappointed to hear that most of the songs are not much more than mabanga set to a repetitious rhythm. I have included one of the actual songs in this program.
I am always happy to play anything by Youlou Mabiala and today I had a chance to spin his great MON AVOCAT A VOYAGE song in its entirety.

WELCOME!

I would also like to thank Moos of Global Groovers for making some rare recordings available over the past year for me to share and for us to enjoy!
Today, the first hour is devoted to some songs from new releases and new reissues that I have been listening to.
