Papa wemba, voorkant

Op Disco Stock hebben we vandaag een mooi stukje cavacha
van de Congolese groep Viva la Musica. Voorman Papa Wemba
overleed afgelopen zaterdag tijdens een optreden in Abidjan op
66 jarige leeftijd. Hij kwam tijdens zijn carriere diverse malen in
opspraak, onder andere wegens mensensmokkel. Papa wemba’s
echte naam was Jules Shungu Wembadio Pene Kikumba. Hij was
een van de oprichters van Zaïko Langa Langa..

On Disco Stock we’ve got this slice of cavacha by Viva la Musica.
Frontman Papa Wemba died last saturday during a performance
in Abidjan, age 66. He was involved in smugging scandals a few
times in his life. His real name was Jules Shungu Wembadio Pene
Kikumba. Papa Wemba was one of the founders of Zaïko Langa
Langa. Listen to his most succesful band, Viva la Musica..

  1. Thanks for publishing this LP. I was looking at your collection and didn’t find a lot of his albums. R.I.P. Wemba

  2. It’s been a bad few months for notable musical deaths, and now it’s Papa Wemba. The consolation is that he died while doing what he did so very well: giving us all so much wonderful pleasure. R.I.P. Papa.

  3. He made the first Congolese videoclip with siku ya mungu sang in Swahili. I think in 1986 if I remember well. Really pity he died so early. I was surprised that it appeared even on Belgian news. Belgian TV is not really a hotspot for African music. As a Congolese artist you need to die or to have problems with the law to be shown or mentioned on our TV stations. Remember Franco who also never appeared on Belgian TV before he died. I will always remember him as one of the greatest musicians of all time. Thanks for this record Moos, it brings me back to memory lane. Rik

  4. This is an excellent album but it’s more an album of the singers of Viva La Musica than a Papa Wemba album. I hear Dindo Yogo, Emeneya, Esperant … but I don’t think Papa Wemba himself sung much on it.
    Viva La Musica those days (late 70s early 80s) was a fantastic band and recorded some of the most exciting Zairean/Congolese music ever.
