Welcome to everyone else! Thank you for listening.
This July 24, I have put together some music from the Wenge family of bands and musicians.
Zaiko Langa-Langa launched a new youth sound in the 70s, leading to the creation of new super groups like Langa-Langa Stars, Viva la Musica and Victoria Eleison and the rise of a number of super stars from those groups.
Wenge Musica bands created a new youth sound in the 80s and again launched a whole new generation born of or influenced by them.
This program most likely does not contain a lot of old favorites for those listeners who came of age with the ndombolo sound, but it does give a chance to listen to a few and it does contain a few newer recordings and some songs by individuals who stared off in one or another of the Wenge bands and took their music in a personal direction.
I hope you will enjoy and I hope you will leave a note with any requests for another edition.
