The story of Zaïko Langa-Langa is a long and complex one. They changed
their name, form, strength various times and lots of offspring groups came
from them. I advice you to read Wikipedia on Zaïko Langa-Langa for the whole
story. We had us quite some of their records and of Clan Langa Langa over
the years, take a look below. Maybe I even forgot some. Yesterday’s album
also belongs to the list. The record we have today is from 1987 and rocks
like hell, listen and check their Discogs Discography ..
Zaïko Langa-Langa is een band met een complexe historie. Ze begonnen in
1969 en veranderden meerdere malen van naam, bezetting, vorm etc. Het is
raadzaam het hele verhaal eens te lezen op Wikipedia over Zaïko Langa-Langa
als het je interesseert. We hadden hier reeds meerdere van hun platen en
van formaties die uit Zaïko zijn ontsproten. Ik kan er enkele zijn vergeten
maar hieronder vind je een hele lijst. het album van gisteren hoort er ook
bij. ‘Subissez le Consequences’ van vandaag stamt uit 1987 en gaat lekker
los. Luister en check hun Discogs Discografie ..

The last album before they split thanks Moos.
Hi Moos ,Nibe but also Kevalina were big hits for Zaiko when I stayed in Goma in 1988. Even a year after release the songs were played easily twice or trice a night in the nightclubs I frequented. Fantastic time. When I came back to Belgium I saw the band 4 times between 1989 and 1990. Every time they played for a Congolese audience these songs were played. I was so crazy about the songs that I bought the LP and the CD. I can recommend this album to all Rumba lovers. Of course Zaiko dont make bad albums. Cheers Rik
Great to hear your side of the story Rick, thanks for your input ..
Hi Moos, I might be seriously mistaken but if I am correct the front cover is a picture taken during a concert at Salle de la Madeleine in Brussels. As it is Congo week I have two requests of songs which are just vague childhood memories. Just testing my luck. Gateau ya Anniversaire , Langa Langa Stars and j’y pleure et puis j”oublie , Arican Fiesra et Dr. Nico.
Maybe you have them. The one from African Fiesta is a cover from Claude François. Thanks for putting Rumba on the map and showing the world how big the record industry in Africa is. Rik
Unfortunately I don’t have those tracks Rick, at first I thought I had
Langa Langa Stars, well I have the right sleeve but there is a wrong album inside, big shame ..
Thanks for checking Moos. I keep visiting the recordshops in Brussels once in a while.. I might be lucky one day!
