Ambiance Congo: September 4, 2016

WELCOME TO AMBIANCE CONGO!
Friends and followers, listeners and new visitors:
You won't find any autotune or electronic beats here today. What you'll hear are real voices, real guitars, real horns and real percussion.Today we have a selection of songs from one of the best eras in Congolese music, beautifully composed, beautifully orchestrated and beautifully sung. This is strong music, strong music with a unique and electrifying fire. Music that has captured the hearts and minds of millions of people all across Sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America, Western Europe, India and Japan. Music that has been lovingly collected, shared, emulated and even copied wherever it has been heard.
This is Rumba Odemba, the Old Style of Congolese rumba from well known masters like Franco of TP OK Jazz, Celestin Kouka of  Les Bantous de la Capitale, and Dr. Nico of African Fiesta - to musicians like Sax Matalanza and Papa Noel who played in those bands, came up through the ranks and continued the good work - to others who strove to make excellent music in the format and genre of the giants.
By no means all-inclusive, but lovingly compiled for you to enjoy.
