Rochereau & l’Orchestre African Fiesta National ( le Peuple )- Seigneur Rochereau, Sonafric 50 004

Rochereau, front

At the back of this album, Rochereau calls tracks 2,4,5,7 not
‘rumba’ but ‘jobs’ or ‘rumba-jobs’. Can anyone tell us what it
stands for ? I never heard the term before. To me, it’s all
rumba, but I’m a layman of course. Hope to learn something
here. But first, absorb the voice of lightness, very nice..

tracks;

1 Mokrano
2 Gipsy
3 Kashama nkoy
4 Caroline mama
5 Toyota
6 Kasala
7 Mon mari est capable

  1. Hi Moos, Jobs refers to the rythm that was a hype in Congo in the seventies for a year or two. Grand Maquisards were especially strong at it.

  3. The nickname Tabu Ley Rochereau Pascal (born 1940) is that it was the only student in her class to name the champion of the French city of Belfort against the Prussians in the nineteenth century: Colonel Denfert-Rochereau.
    After a stint in the African Jazz, in 1963 he founded the African Fiesta, which became in the 1970s the most famous group under the name of Zaire Afrisa International.

    This is the time when Franco and Rochereau compete for talent in their respective clubs and opt for the rumba and soukous Odemba (s), highlighting the Seben, a long instrumental performance following the introductory verse.

    The title of his first composition, Besame Muchacha, which dates from 1956, reflects the preferences of the time when the Congolese were enthusiastic about the Afro-Cuban music.
    The years 1953-56 are marked by the success of the African Jazz.
    From 1959, Rochereau is part of the orchestra of Grand Kalle.
    We recorded his song “Kelia” and he became artistic director of the group.
    In 1963, under the direction of Rochereau, African Jazz renovated gives birth the African Fiesta. That’s when Rochereau – now Lord Rochereau – creates success “Mokili MobiMB Afrika”, “Mokolo Nakokuffa” and “Madina”.
    In the late 1960s, Tabu Ley is the subject of real national tributes and early 1970s, his records sell for more than one million copies.
    In 1970, at the height of his career, going Rochereau in Paris at the Olympia.
    He has since recorded many albums, some of which are extremely interesting because it plays with other musicians famous Zaire. We see and play with Franco in a memorable farewell recorded by Sonodisc Grand Kalle “Kabasele In Memoriam”.

    Tabu Ley Rochereau, who has over 2000 songs to his credit and is expressed in Lingala, became both the patriarch of the Zairian music and a popular figure respected and listened.
    He introduced a new style inspired by the twist and the rock: for the first time the battery is emerging in an orchestra with his band African Afrisa International.

    In Zaire, the African Jazz, the International Afrisa and OK Jazz Orchestra Veve added, led by George M. Kiamwangana Verckys said, forming a new “school”.

    In 1959, on the other side of the river in Brazzaville, the Bantu are born of the capital, with Nedule said Papa Noel and Jean Essous. The band brings a new sound color and invented the rumba butcher rhythm to dance more than a generation of Congolese.
    thx for that great album
