Ambiance Congo: December 27, 2015

Welcome!
Today I had a few requests to honor for some songs that are very different from one another. It was a challenge, fun but challenging, to try to make the songs flow nicely into one another. I am glad for the requests! Your input makes the program better than when I just choose the songs myself!
Thanks to Dave, Lionel and Jork.
Although there are some mid 2000s songs, the selections here are mostly songs from the late 70s to early 90s, some with horns, some without. All with great guitar!
Enjoy!

Ambiance Congo: December 13, 2015

Welcome to Ambiance Congo radio program. On these pages you may find many programs and posts in the series that features a variety of great Congolese songs, groups and musicians.
Today's edition starts off with a wonderful track by Les Bantous de la Capitale -obviously one of my very favorite groups - from one of their later albums. I mostly played music from the 80s and early 90s after that, digging through the crate to follow one good song with another and another. I hope you'll agree!
In the second part, we have a lot of LPs, many from Congo Brazzaville including a Sacodis label LP by Michel Moutouari and a rollicking guitar song by Petit Poisson on the Editions Tse Tse label...who's logo includes a drawing of the deadly fly!
No requests today? That's OK. Just place one with a comment here or go to the Ambiance Congo Requests link.
Enjoy!

Ambiance Congo: November 1, 2015

Welcome to Ambiance Congo radio program.
I always find joy in this music, no matter what the circumstances.
I missed posting for the last program (October 18, 2015), but you can listen to that program (as well as this one) at Radio4all. It was recorded during WRIR's Fall Fund Drive, so I tried to play music that would spark some activity in the donation department.
Find them both here: http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/series/Ambiance+Congo

But let's focus on this edition!
I brought another big crate of records and discs along with no idea what was going to spin...and it came out great. I've been checking a lot of my older albums to see what songs I've missed over the past 10 years at WRIR. Some of these songs, such as those sung by M'Bilia Bel and M'Pongo Love, come from those older records.

Hope you'll enjoy, leave a request or comment.
Here's a zip file with the show and the trackist.
