Exporta Samba – Reunião de Bacana
Kelo Music 1980

Het is vandaag weer eens tijd voor samba. Van deze groep hadden
we er al twee. Bekende sambistas als Almir Guineto, Beto sem Braço
en Rubens da Mangueira maakten er deel van uit. Al is 1980 wat aan
de late kant, de sambas klinken als vanouds. Een album zeer de
moeite van het beluisteren waard, geef hem een slinger ..

Today it is time for some samba. From this group we already had us
two records. Famous sambistas like Almir Guineto, Beto sem Braço
and Rubens da Mangueira were part of it. Even though 1980 is somewhat
on the late side, this album sounds like the old days. An elpee very much
worth listening to, give it a couple of spins ..

Choc Stars – Carnaval Choc Stars
Editions Eprodis 1988

Hello groovers, seven days are way too little to give a decent
picture of the history of Congolese music. A group that many

couple of their records so far. This is a Zaïrian release I have
found not so long ago. Vocals by Ben Nyamabo, Lassa Carlito,
Debaba, Defao, Djuna Djana, Nyayadio, Zemano Kamza and
Petit Prince. This one is for Harris, Soukousman, Mikaya,

the works of Choc Stars ..

Orchestre Somo Somo was founded by Mose Se Sengo
‘Fan Fan’ and Youlou Mabiala, Bichou and Kwamy in 1974.
The group collapsed when Youlou returned to OK Jazz.
Bichou joined Orchestre Vévé and Kwamy went to Tabu
Ley’s Afrisa. There was another line up later in England
in 1984 and this one was put together by Mose Se Sengo
in Paris in 1986. Anyway, with Fan Fan this is the third
entry here at the GG. We had this one from 1985 and
Belle Epoque from 1994. Mose Se Sengo died from a heart
attack in Nairobi, Kenya on may 3rd, 2019, he was a pioneer
in modern Congolese music ..

Bantous Jazz – Les Merveilles
du Passé (1962 – 1964) vol. 2
african 1985

Les Bantous de la Capitale is one of the longest-lasting and most influential
groups in the musical history of the Congo (now Democratic Republic of the
Congo). Formed in 1959, the band played a major role in the introduction and
growing popularity of boucher, which vitalized the Cuban-influenced rumba,
and soukous. Initially co-led by saxophonists Dieudonne “Nino” Malapet and
Jean Serge Essous, Les Bantous de la Capitale made their mark with a series
of dance-inspiring singles that are reprised on the three-CD collection
Les Merveilles du Passé. Les Bantous de la Capitale has withstood several
personnel changes. When Essous elected to remain in
Paris after recording with the group, Malapet assumed leadership. Despite
geographical obstacles, Essous has continued to perform with the band.
Although the Congolese government’s issuing of an official cultural policy,
Authenticité ’67, resulted in the loss of several musicians, substitutes
were found and Les Bantous de la Capitale has continued to
tour and record. Singers have included Kosmos Kapitza, Pamelo Mounk’a, and
Tchico Tchicaya. Guitarists have included former Franco & OK Jazz member
Nedule Papa Noel and Samba Mascott. Les Bantous de la Capitale can be
found on solo albums by Mascott, Mounk’a, and Essous. (All Music)

Zaïko Langa-Langa
Subissez les Consequences
Disques Esperance 1987

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 ..

J.P. Tshamala Moonwalker NM 46301

Summer started officially on june 21st. Temperatures are
rising instantly, records are expected to be broken this week.
African music fits in perfect under these conditions so a Congo
theme week seemed a logical thing to do. Congolese music is
most popular here at the Global Groove so let’s go. Today’s
album concerns a group of highly gifted talents of the Clan
Langa-Langa. We find Gina-Wa-Gina, Papa Wemba, Evoloko
Lay-Lay and Mavuela Somo on this hot Congolese entry.
No year of release is known of this French product.
Get it, spread it and enjoy listening ..

De zomer is officieel begonnen op de 21ste. De temperaturen
schieten ook direct omhoog, het schijnt zelfs dat komende week
warmte records zullen worden gebroken. Afrikaanse muziek com-
bineert hier goed mee dus een Congo thema week leek me logisch.
Congolese muziek is nog steeds zeer populair hier op de Global
Groove dus let’s go. We openen vandaag met een plaat met de
hoogbegaafden der Clan Langa-Langa. We vinden Gina-Wa-Gina,
Papa Wemba, Evoloko Lay-Lay en Mavuela Somo op deze hot
release waarvan geen jaar van uitgifte bekend is. Down, deel

Rex Williams and his Nigerian Artistes – Uduak Abasi
Ben Ltd. 1980

Searching the web on Rex Williams and his Nigerian Artistes
we find quite a lot on Etubom Rex Williams the trumpeteer.
On this album however, which is in his discography
on Discogs, there is very little trumpet. We find a man called
Ime Williams who is the vocalist, Baby Okon on saxophone and
Udo Tom Aupan on trombone. Overall the sound is carried
by a delightful guitar played by Udo Johnson. Review
Maybe Rex wasn’t in the mood to play this day ..

Als we het web raadplegen om iets te vinden over Rex Williams
and his Nigerian Artistes, vinden we van alles over Etubom Rex
Williams de bekende trompettist. Op dit album, welke
in de lijst staat van zijn Discogs discografie, horen we heel
weinig trompet. Een man met de naam Ime Williams is de vocalist,
we vinden Baby Okon op saxofoon en Udo Tom Aupan op trombone.
De sound wordt vooral gedragen door een heerlijk sprankelende
gitaar gespeeld door Udo Johnson. Review
Misschien had onze Rex deze dag niet zo’n zin
om te spelen.

Good afternoon groovers, now here’s the seventh and for this
moment last sampler of the sampler theme week. It is number
70 and goes back to the mids of march 2018. We are getting a
bit closer to the present day. This morning Jos sent me a link

of Les Bantous de la Capitale among others. Today’s compilation
opens with them. Enjoy watching and listening ..

Goede middag platen vrienden, hier is dan de voorlopig laatste

link naar een zeer interessante documentaire waarin we een van
mijn platen leveranciers zien op zijn reis naar Congo. Hij ontmoet
o.a. de oude heren van Les Bantous de la Capitale waar vandaag’s
sampler mee opent. Geniet van de docu
