We had us one of his records in october 2008 already. Almost
nine years ago, it was a fine record which didn’t get the right
attention then. Today we have another one by Angelo y su
Conjunto modelo, nice son montuno from Cuban origin.
I don’t know about you but I really love it..

We hadden reeds in oktober van 2008 een van zijn platen.
Op de kop af negen jaar geleden alweer, het was en topper
die onterecht weinig respons opleverde. Vandaag nog zo’n
Cubaans hoogstandje van Angelo en zijn Conjunto Modelo.
Lekkere son montuno, ik hou ervan, en jij ..?

tracks ;

01 – A bailar montuno
02 – Cantando mi son me muero
03 – Francisco guayabal
04 – Congri con chicharron
05 – Monte adentro
06 – Aprendi soñando
07 – Soy campesino
08 – Ya llego fantomas

Cumbias, Cumbias, Cumbias
Various Artists, Discos Fuentes 1995

Cumbias, cumbias, cumbias, front

I received requests for more cumbias with acordeon, let’s see..
In 1995 Discos Fuentes took a dive in their vaults and came out
with this collection of cumbias. They did a good job polishing
the sound of the old songs, they are as good as new again and
sound as if they were recorded only yesterday. 16 very strong
numbers of which I’m sure you’re gonna play them very much.
Do not miss, get and spread straight away..

is one you really should hear, enjoy listening,
..and watching..

Okukuseku International Band of Ghana
Vol. 3, Muomaife Records 1978

Okukuseku, front

Okukuseku

A very popular highlife group in our little music community
is without doubt this one. Sammy Kofi and his Okukuseku
International Band of Ghana worked from Lagos Nigeria.
It’s on Muomaife Records and from 1978. Recorded in a
christian radio studio I do not wish to know what the
lyrics mean. I do know I like it very much musically.
Great rhythms, Sammy Kofi’s wonderful voice,
more sweet highlife, don’t miss..
p.s.
Track #3 has two small pops,
I’m sorry about that.

tracks;

01 – Bz mi dua nie sae
02 – Abua zni dua nyane na pra no tio
03 – Sanka me wo adekye bi sen obia
04 – Mede meho aba munye mami

Eternel Docteur Nico & Orchestre African Fiesta – Merveilles du Passé 1967, African 360.159, 1986

Docteur Nico, front

One of Africa’s greatest solists of all time was without doubt
Docteur Nico Kasanda. His work was one of great sensibility,
undeniable grandeur and unmatched beauty. It is a shame
his music was kept in the dark for whole populations of the
western world for ages. It is only since the birth of the digital
highway this unique material from Africa’s past gets spread
world wide and slowly more people start listening tot this rich
piece of cultural inheritance. Please help to reanimate almost
forgotten treasures like this. Download it and play it for your
parents, your brothers and sisters, your
children and your friends.
Cheers..

Bopol Mansiamina – Ça c’est quoi ? Shakara Music

Bopol, front

Hello world, it is saturday morning this 9th of march,
spring is not there yet and that shows. Rain, rain and
more rain is pouring from the sky. Winter took far too
long to pass this year and we’re all glad temperatures
are rising slowly, we’re not there yet but it gets better.
The best we can do is take an advance on summer by
listening to some warm soukous for instance. Bopol
Mansiamina is the man I have in mind and he’s back
with this album on which we find some of the finest
artists. On guitars next to Bopol himself we’ve got
Lokassa ya M’bongo and Dally Kimoko. On bass
it’s Bopol once more and he’s also taking care of
vocals with Wuta May, Ballou and Jean Papy.
Denis Hekimian on drums, nothing can go
wrong here. In the mean time we’re
making good progress with the
new and improved GG..
Hang in there a
bit more..

1 Ça c’est quoi ?
