A couple of old songs from Wuta Mayi

On the last edition of Ambiance Congo, I played a song from an old album by Wuta May (Wuta Mayi). That song has stuck in my head for a week now, so I thought I'd share another from that same album. Here's the album cover:
And here is TIKABA COIN from this album for your enjoyment.

While we're at it, let's add a couple more songs from Wuta May.

From his OLE LA VIE album,

here's PAPA MONE.

And from the album LE BEACH,

I'll be using the release of the new double CD & DVD of WERRA SON & WENGE MAISON MERE as an excuse to catch up on some of the better new releases in Congolese music.

Ambiance Congo for Sunday June 8, 2008

Listen live from 3:00-5:00 PM Eastern time.

This edition I'll be spinning mostly vinyl so listen in to hear music that you may not find any place else. I'll also have a song from each of the latest Ets. Veve International CDs by Pronce Youlou Mabiala and by Verckys & Le Veve. Both are next to impossible to get here in the USA so don't miss out!

Check the tracklist at the site listed above. Here are four of the album covers.

This program is available for download for the next two weeks;
