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!

This is the last post for 2019. It has been a good year in which a number of new friends have requested some of their favorite songs. I thank them for this as your requests many times add a diversity of songs to the program that I may or may not have thought to include. 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.

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!
