Samba Mascott – Mwana Angola (Congo, 1976, Sonafric)

Joseph Samba “Mascott” Mayanguila was a Congolese singer, born the 15 of August 1943 in the country of Loumou (Republic of Congo).

He played in several famous national orchestras such as “Les Bantous de la Capitale” (former musicians from Orchestre TP OK Jazz and Orchestre Rock-a-Mambo) or “Orchestre National du Congo” (read this article for more informations), and also released a few singles and albums by himself.
He died the 10 of April 1991 in Brazzaville, at the age of 48.
I selected for you “Mwana Angola”, a deep acoustic track track he released in 1976 on a Congolese compilation destinate to promote the Samay record Edition.

 Have a nice sunday evening,

Orchestre National du Congo – Ah ! Congo (Congo, 1976, Editions Nationales)

L’Orchestre National du Congo was a band from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, founded in 1975 by Sebastien Bikouta.

They recorded this album in 1976, with the help of the Congolese Ministry of Culture.

I decided to make you (re)discover the track “Ah ! Congo”, a splendid now classic afro funk track (I really advise you this record, plenty of beautiful tracks !).
