Ambiance Congo: January 6, 2019

Welcome to the first show of 2019!
I have been going through older albums to find great songs I have not shared with you.
I was surprised to find a Viva la Musica song with Reddy Amisi that I've missed and the wonderful USHUAIA album by Abeba Lipordo backed by Viva musicians and stars like Bozi Boziana and Popolipo that I have managed to overlook for years. I have to say that I have been playing that album a lot for the last few days. I'm going to have to play more from it on future programs.
Thanks to Francoise for the request for a great Youlou Mabiala song!
I hope that you will find some other gems here that you will enjoy.
Thanks for listening!

Ambiance Congo: December 23, 2018

WELCOME!
This last show of 2018 has some real gems for you. Included is another great song from KaRmapa's CALIGULA two CD set and new music from Les Bantous de la Capitale and from two 2018 releases by veterans of Les Bantous, Edo Nganga and Lambert Kabako.
About Les Bantous: this is one of the longest established Congolese bands, established in 1959 and they are still great making music today!
From OK Jazz, we hear another Edo Nganga composition from 1957. From Docteur Nico we have a great track recorded with l'African Jazz of Grand Kalle and from Les Bantous we hear a new version of an African Jazz song.
I hope that you will enjoy the program.

Ambiance Congo: December 9, 2018

WELCOME!
Sunday was cold and the snow was coming down hard. I wanted to warm everybody up with some hot Congolese music...and I hope that this program did the job. It kept me dancing!
Thanks to everyone who called in or wrote to me on Facebook to request songs or to comment!
Special thanks to Moos for the Viva Mandolina LP. That one is is a killer...and one I have never heard before.
Also, we have yet another good song from Blaise Bula's RENDIKITA set, I can always play something by Syran M'Benza (this one with Sam Mangwana on vocals) and check out the new song from Desouza Santu! I have that new album on repeat play at my house.
What would you like to hear next time around?

Ambiance Congo: November 11, 2018

Welcome!
All live sets today. I've been preparing for a program of Congolese live music videos that I'll be presenting in February in conjunction with an art exhibition. Some of the songs heard here today are from DVDs that I've chosen, some are from LPs and CDs. I love concert videos and the music and I wish that the performances could be presented here, but they cannot, so we have just the music.
Most of these songs are from the 1990s through today. If you'd like to have another program with classics from bands like TP OK Jazz, Afrisa International or Trio Madjesi, please let me know and I'll do another show.
Thanks to Moos for the opportunity to present the great song by Lita Bembo & Stukas.

You can hear other live programs from Ambiance Congo here:
June 7, 2009 and here: March 23, 2014

Ambiance Congo: October 28, 2018

Welcome!
I have been playing a lot of older music of late, so in today's first set, I have played some newer music that I enjoy for your listening pleasure.
Balise Bula's RENDIKITA discs are still in my top favorites for the year, so I've added an excellent song from that set.
At the recommendation of a listener in the UK, I got a copy of the latest Dago Son (Dagoson) disc and a song is included here.
The second set takes us back to some great older LPs. I have to thank Alice for her call during the program, encouraging me to keep these great songs coming...which I did! Thanks also to the anonymous caller who wanted to express his great pleasure with the song from the LP by Jean Sylvain Goma (with sax by Verckys). I've played songs from most of these albums before and the album sleeve images can be found by searching these pages.
