We had us a few records with Empire Bakuba already
but this one is somehow different. It tells us frontman
is Papy Tex instead of Pépé Kallé. His name doesn’t
even appear. I am sure to hear him a few times though.
Papy Tex wrote the tracks on this album and comes
out strong to my opinion. I dare say this is a
typical Empire Bakuba slice and it rocks
like always, listen and dance away..
1 Livre d’or
2 Pebi ya pembe
4 Ce n’est pas ma faute
This is a great work from Papy Tex. Classic.
thank you moos
I used to love this record when I was in Congo/Zaïre in 1986 and again in 1987 when I also purchased it.I lost it however in the 90’s when I was living in Harare. A few weeks ago I bought it on cd in Matonge , Brussels together with Pepe Kallé’s kwasakwasa. It made my day! Or should I say my year. So my friends you can still get those gems in the Congolese music shops in Ixelles,Brussels at quite reasonable prices. Probably in Paris too. The sound of those Congolese reissue cd’s is really good.
it is about time for me to visit Ixelles and find some of that stuff,
thanks for reminding me..cheers Rik..
