Today, 20 years ago, we lost ‘le grand maitre Franco Luambo Makiadi’.
I was going to post one of the ‘Le Quart de Siècle’ series but I saw
that one of my fellowbloggers posted all four of them. ( Worldservice )
Two years before his tragic death, Franco played here in the Netherlands.
Unfortunately I was not sharp then and missed it. Good thing we have this
live registration which I am posting instead. It contains a live version of
Lutumba Simaro’s ‘Testament ya bowule’ which I like so much.
Not Franco’s best live album but very appropriate for this day.
