  1. @ Global Groove
    Thank you too much!
    Except maybe for ‘Ya Jean’ and “Mario’ feel the best Madilou songs are on that disk.

    @ Timothy
    Any place where we can find the lyrics of these songs?

    Regards,

    I haven’t found the lyrics for these tracks anywhere. “Mamou” is probably the easiest to transcribe and translate so I might have a go at it myself when I get some free time.
    Since you’re interested in Lingala lyrics and their translation, here are two useful books to add to the “fun” shelves in your study:
    DZOKANGA A. & al: Chanson et Proverbes Lingala, Conséil international de la langue française, Paris, 1993
    MABIKA PIE-AUBIN: La Chanson congolaise: son histoire, sa vérité, ses textes et leurs significations, L’Harmattan, Paris, 2005
    À bientôt …

  5. What a strange album this is, first of all it has the same serial number as the lp Tres Impoli: 028. Also the fact that the English word presents is used instead of the French presente, so it probably was released in Kenya.

    Then the impression is given that this was a Madilu solo album which it is not, the 4 songs come from 4 different lp’s. Most curious of all is the inclusion of the Dennis Bonyeme composition Burreau des coeurs, the lead vocalist being Ntesa Dalienst, Madilu can only be heard twice during a couple of seconds in the chorus.

  7. For so many years in my life I have never come a cross such fine music.
    A music of all times and for all people.
    My father the late Collins Obare Bita was a great fan of Franco T.P. OK.JAZZ and Madilu. this was the anthem of our home.
    Music is powerful mode of communication that we cant survive without
