The “Tryo Bydoli” band was a composed of 3 Abidjan (Ivory Coast) based Congolese musicians : Lea Lignanzi, Domingo Salsero and Bhy Gao.
They released 2 very good and hard to find albums in the early 80s before splitting.
“Lalia”, the song presented here, is the last song of their first album, a deep Afro Psych Funk track with catchy horns and guitar parts – Enjoy !

Abeti Masikini was one of the most famous Congolese singer, born on the 9 of October 1951 in Kisangani (Democratic Republic of Congo, former Zaire).
After being graduated of a secretary diploma, she integrated the Congolese Ministry of Culture and Arts in 1969.
She started to become known in 1970 thanks to a singing contest on the National Congolese TV, toured in 1971 in many African countries (Togo, Benin, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Ghana, Niger..), in Europe (she performed in France in 1973 at the Olympia Concert Hall in Paris, in Belgium..) and also in the United States 1974 at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York.
She recorded her first album in 1973 and around 20 others and dozens of singles after that.
She died on the 28th of September 1994 in Paris.
The song presented here, “Beya Beya“, is a splendid deep and melancholic Afro psych fusion track taken from the live album that was recorded on the 7 and 8 of April 1975 at the Olympia Concert Hall in Paris – Enjoy !
