Zaïre vol. 2, voorkant

Air Zaïre, voorkant

Op Makossa International vinden we deze schijf vinyl waarop
twee bands vertegenwoordigd zijn. Allereerst met drie nummers
Docteur Nico et l’Orchestre African Fiesta en vervolgens op kant
twee, Orchestre Bana Mambo met twee nummers. Heerlijke
sound uit 1982. Van Orchestre African Fiesta had ik ook nog
in de wacht een verzameling van zes nummers op een soort
bootleg of uitgave van Air Zaïre. De eerste drie nummers
op deze plaat staan reeds op ‘african 360.020’ en zijn
bovendien enigszins beschadigd. Als bonus heb ik nu
de tweede kant van deze plaat toegevoegd, drie
nummers die ooit als single waren verschenen.

On Makossa International we find this slice of vinyl on which
two bands are presented. To begin with, with three songs we
find Docteur Nico et l’Orchestre African Fiesta and on the second
side we have Orchestre Bana Mambo with two songs. Delightful
early eighties sound. By Orchestre African Fiesta I also had waiting
some kind of bootleg or Air Zaïre release with six tracks. The first
three were already on ‘african 360.020’ and have some damage
too. As a bonus I now added the second side of this album,
three songs that were once released as singles. Enjoy..

  1. Here’s some background information on Bana Mambo, from Gary Stewart’s indispensable Rumba on the River history, page 267. Beginning with Soki Vangu’s group Bella Mambo, which included Diblo Dibala and Kanda Bongo: “Kanda, Diblo, and some of the other musicians broke away from Soki to form Orchestre Bana Mambo (the children of Bella Mambo) at the end of 1976. With Kanda as its leader… Bana Mambo stayed together for two years.”

  2. I really want to hear more of bana mambo. It’s impossible to find… ?
    Mwana na ngai 1&2 is awsome!

  3. Thanks, brilliant. Unusual Dr. Nico , in tone and production. Figures late. Is it really Fiesta, can you hear Rochereau vocals? Any details, anyone? I really love it. I’m sure Dechaud is there.

  4. Hi Moos. So many fantastic posts!
    I didn’t think the last two bonus tracks were Dr Nico’s work. A quick search brought this up.

    So it’s Conga Succes. Great stuff though.
    By the way, do you have anything by Simba Wanyika? One of my all time favourite bands, strangely forgotten about and often confused with Les Wanyika – a very different band!
    Many many thanks. Dank u vel.
