Lady Isa – Tabou Ya Afrika

( Democratic Republic Of Congo , 1980s , Espera )

posted on 11 / 03 / 2024

For today, I wanted to share with you “Tabou Ya Afrika“, an instant catchy balearic 80s Afro Electro Boogie Funk Synth track with insane drum machines backing, taken from the 2nd album of the Congolese Diva Isabelle “Lady Isa” Kozonga, recorded in the late 80s in Belgium with the help of the producer & musician Emmanuel “Manu” Lima.

This track is taken from a record that has another pressing, with different versions & arrangements of the songs. The one presented here is my favorite, with musical flavors that reminds me a bit of the African anthem “Let Me Love You” composer in 1979 by the Sierra Leonean musician “Bunny Mack” (Cecil Bunting MacCormack).

Devastating dance floor weapon, this record never leaves my DJ Bag when I’m invited to play records in parties & clubs – Enjoy !
