Siassia And Talk (Republic of Congo, 198?, Private Press)

For today, I wanted to present you a super obscure one and only 12 inches 4 track EP recorded in the 80’s in Paris by the Congolese artist Albert Siassa, originary from Pointe-Noire.

I decided to make you discover “Escale (Bolingo)”, a nice #Afro Boogie track recorded with drum machines – but the whole EP is great and in the same vein !!

Liza Ngwa – Alima (Cameroun, 1980, Editions Drums)

Liza Ngwa was a folk singer and guitar player from Yaoundé (Cameroon), who released 2 albums in the 70’s.

She was also involved into different form of art (sculpture, dress-making, sport..) and cultural performances (theater performances, concerts..).

I decided to make you (re)discover “Alima”, a very unique folk song with psychedelic bikutsi and cadence reminiscences, taken from her second album recorded in 1980.
