Zao – Ancien Combattant (Republic of Congo, 1984, Black Music)

One of the biggest African Anthems by the Congolese Artist Casimir “Zao” Zoba, taken from his first album.
This version is actualy an adaptation from “Petit Imprudent”, a song written and composed in 1969 by the guitarist and singer Idrissa Soumaoro, but Idrissa never succeded in his claim.
There is also another cover of this song, recorded in 1973 by the Guinean band Balla Et Ses Balladins.
