Ambiance Congo: March 23, 2014

Welcome!
Thank you everyone for your continued support of this program.
WRIR is an all volunteer radio station. As part of our mission to present music, news and opinion that is unrepresented or under represented, I bring you Ambiance Congo every other week. I do what I can to raise awareness of the great Congolese music. Twice per year we must ask others to help with this. So we have a fund-raiser.
Today's program was presented as part of that effort. Will you help with a small donation?
https://wrir.wufoo.com/forms/fund-drive-donation-wrirlp-973-fm/
I extend my sincere thanks to those who donated to the cause during this program.

Beside our main studio, WRIR has a wonderful Live Room from which live music is broadcast. I could not get an appropriate band to play, so in lieu of that I have compiled and presented some excellent live recordings of Congolese music.




















I hope that you will enjoy the program!
