Today’s post concerns an album of which we had the first volume
already. Somehow I can’t seem to find it back however, it looks like
another post that has disappeared over the years, very strange. No
worries about it because off course we’ve got it stored safely here
at the home of the Global Groove. So, here are volumes one and
two of Langa-Langa Stars on Editions VéVé International. They
belong to the finest of Congolese records in our collection,
get them and spread them as usual..
tracks vol. 1;
01 – Avenir mbeya mbeya
02 – Tantine betena
03 – Autopsie beloti
04 – Mase femme africaine
tracks vol. 2;
01 – Requiem
02 – Parfum na ngai
03 – Ata pneu ya reserve nandimi
04 – Gloria mangasa
Thanks, Moos. Any idea of a date on that? Other than presumably sometime in the 1970s?
..I’m afraid not..
(EVVI 16D) Verckys présente Langa Langa Stars vol 2 (1981)
(EVVI 17) Langa Langa Stars – Avenir Mbeya (1983)
They’re both released in 1981. The albums that were released in 1982 were Likombe, Dalida, and Soleil. Guitar work is Nene Tchakou, Roxy Tshimpaka, and Beniko Popolipo. Beniko and Dindo Yogo went to Zaiko Langa Langa in 1983 and Roxy joined Choc Stars in late 1983.
Thank you very much.
Do you have more Congolese music I’m such a big fan of Congolese music.
..a Congolese record every once in a while,
but it’s variety that keeps this site going.
I don’t want steak every day, fish, fruits,
vegetables and lambchops too..
Did you the band Langa Langa Stars started in my mother’s area were she was born in Yolo in Kinshasa ‘Bana Dallas’
In wanted to know the release-dates and searched the web.
Bolingo says: both were released in 1983 >http://bolingo.org/audio/africa/congo/disco/LP/vv.htm<
All the best, Thomas
Andre, thanks very much for the date.
Still to get on CD! Place to be gallerie d’ Ixelles Bruxelles
Thank you for having added volume 1 but in 128 kbps ?! It is at least surprising !
..that is surprising indeed, I don’t understand how that happened muself..
Any chance of a reup ?
