Amadou Balake – Bar Konou Mousso
This week, I wanted to share with you one of my favourite Cameroonian tracks for a long time (and one of my secret weapons !) taken on this record from Mongo Ndouan from Cameroon, the one and only LP he recorded on a private local record label before totally disappearing.
Jerry Ella was an obscure musician from Nigeria, who released only one album in 1985 with his band “The Sparklings”, composed of Nigerian and Cameroonian musicians – No more infos on this one, sorry !
You can also listen to this song on my new Youtube channel here : https://youtu.be/R41IkgUQeDQ
Have a nice week,
He has lived in Angola, Portugal and France, forced to regularly move in the 70’s because of his commitment in struggle for the independence of Angola (former Portuguese colony).
He has released more than 30 albums (his last album was recorded in 2016), and he’s still active today.
I decided to make you discover “Ngila”, a raw and melancholic song taken from my favourite album (his 6th album), “Kualuka Kuetu”.
Bonga – Ngila
He stills lives and performs in Nigeria today and he’s the president of Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria.
For today, I decided to presend you “1000 Miles”, an incredible track showing that Juju music can sometimes be as bouncing as Afrobeat does – Enjoy !
