Good morning groovers, can I ask for your help today ?
We have an album by Orchestra Zib-Hombers of which
I can’t seem to find any decent information. Mabuse,
it’s front man appears to be Congolese but one of our
visitors once suggested they are from a mid African
country like Gabon or Cameroon. The music which
was recorded by Namaco in Nigeria is called Rumba
from Zaïre if you believe suggestions made on Amazon.
The lyrics are sung in French and English. All together
I am a bit confused, Are we dealing with a Congolese
group, they mostly use the term ‘orchestre’ in stead
of ‘orchestra’. Melodies make me believe it is more
highlife than rumba, alhough sleeve says ‘sukus’..
it is most certainly no soukous to my opinion.
their English sounds Nigerian style, but French
is not spoken there if I’m not mistaking, so
who can enlighten us with the right info
and solve this mystery..?
