I have another mix with a lot of varied music today.
There's a song from Les Bantous de la Capitale veteran Passy Ngongo Mermans along with some other tunes from Brazzville groups Extra Musica, Trio Ce.Pa.Kos and Mando Negro Kwala-Kwa.
A song from the first Terre Sacree album featuring Roga Roga and Doudou Copa also goes toward that side of the river.
We also hear from an album that is supposed to feature Dr. Nico on guitar along with l'Orchestre Bana Mambo, but the guitar work sounds a lot more like that of Diblo Dibala than that of Dr. Nico.
That's not a bad thing, but I thought that the album label might be wrong. So I did some research and found that Bana Mambo was a band that once worked with Soki Vangu, Kanda Bongo Man and Diblo Dibala. Listening again to this album, I hear Diblo called out.
Also for you, thanks to friend in Europe for this rare treat, we have a cut from the album De Palenque a Matonge of Dizzy Mandjekou with Malage de Lugendo and the Colombian combo Ale Kuma.
