Franco et le T.P. O.K. Jazz – Live en Hollande,Africa Mama Sango 1987

Franco, front, cd size

Today, 20 years ago, we lost ‘le grand maitre Franco Luambo Makiadi’.
I was going to post one of the ‘Le Quart de Si├Ęcle’ 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.
Clicking on the above text enlarges it.

tracks;

1 Mono Muntu
– Miguel
– Mandola
– Testament ya bowule
2 Cherie Obebisi Musi
– Papa Yeye
– Boya ngai

  1. Agree “Testament ya Bowule” is one of the best songs ever. Agree the WorldService video is almost perfect. Wonder if any CD containig this song sung by Malage is avalible.
