Last night, I had a meeting with my Congolese friends Serge and Joe
in Amsterdam. We had a couple of beers and went watching Youtube
video’s and listening to music by, among others, Djo Nolo, Madilu
System and Lita Bembo & Stuka Boys. I had a good time and when I
came home, I dived into my little phonotheque to look if I have any
of that stuff for you. I found this Franco album, a Belgium release,
on which we see a picture of a Djo performing. I am not sure but
is it Djo Nolo who participates on this LP? Other great artists on
the album are Ntesa Dalienst, Ndombe Opetum and Lutumba Simaro.
Please leave a comment if you can enlighten us on the subject.
We are also preparing for an African dance evening on friday,
the 27th of august in a bar in Hilversum, my hometown.
It will take place during ‘Hilversum on Air’, a weekend with
several live acts and other music related events. Stay tuned for
more info, and when you live in the neighbourhood, consider a visit.
We still have a week or 6.
