Ambiance Congo: January 7, 2018

Welcome!
I'm happy to start this new year with a selection of new songs and classics.
2017 ended, as most years do, with a flurry of new releases. My favorites are by older artists such as Bozi Boziana and Sam Mangwana revisiting some of their historic repetoire, but my favorite new album has been, so far, the two CD set CALIGULA 1 & 2  by Le Karmapa.
There have also been new releases by Gloria Tukhadio and Letis Madilu as well a few notable reissues of older albums.
I'd like to thank my good friend and colleague "DJ Graybeard" Charles Williams for covering the program on Christmas Eve with this fine show:

Ambiance Congo: December 10, 2017

Welcome!
I have new albums by Gloria Tukhadio and Sam Mangwana to sample today along with a number of great older music, some of it recently reissued. I am thoroughly enjoying Gloria Tukhadio's album as it is mostly full of new songs in the classic Viva la Musica style with Alexis Azulino on guitar and additional vocals by Santa Nyanga. In the category of older records, I found in my stacks a couple of LPs I'd forgotten about. One by Bouddha Enyula Mayino that features singers Abby Surya, Joly Mubiala and Djeffard Lokombo. Another one, from Geramin Aimen, I bought years ago though I did not know his name at the time because it features Kanda Bongo Man and guitars by Denis Lobassou "La Cloche".
This will be my last program for 2017. I hope that you will enjoy it!
I will have a guest hosting this program for me on Christmas Eve, but I will do what I can to post his program on these pages.
