CONGO

The Repuplic of Congo shares not only a long river border with the Democratic Republic of Congo (or Zaire as it used to be called and I for one still do) but also its love of Rumba and Soukous music. Artists have moved fairly freely between the two countries for many years.

JEFF LOUNA PAULINA MINEURE DARL018 LP 0.00 COL
WOW!...... Now that's what I call music with a capital M. Vocal harmonies as sweet as honey with guitars that sing and a killer brass line up. Who made it? Well back in the good old 80's Jeff did the lead vocals and all the guitaring while Lea Lignanzi and Baba Bhy Gao helped with the singing. Ballou Canta was on toumbas and Manga, Priso, Roger Kom and Ben's comprised the horn section. Strangely this is the first time I have played it since I got it and I probably would have left it in the racks if somebody hadn't been interested in it. ( F.T.Index: Paulina Mineure, Ngai Na Batelo Congo, Sonzo To Disco, Bolingo Va Mbongo Te, Nono Okanisaka. ) [5T/32M] 1. PAULINA MINEURE

Jeff Louna - ORCHESTRE TAO-TAO ORCHESTRE TAO-TAO DE PARIS AFMS005 LP 15.00 COL
A really nice album that is not only difficult to find but also difficult find a country to file it under. Jeff Louna is the only artist I knew and he sings, plays guitars and is also the artistic director so I have placed it under Congo with him. The members of the band come from the Universite d'Amiens and are drawn from Congo, Congo D. R., Central African Republic, Gabon, Benin, Guinea and Cameroon. Musically it is sweetly played guitars up front somewhat soukous in style and if you have a listen some of the tracks on DARL018 you will have a good idea of the sound. 1. SANTA MUTOMBO
