For today, I wanted to share with you “Mambo Marie Madeleine Houi Bin“, a mind-blowing deep melancholic Afro Soul Jazz track with gorgeous horns & Latin flavors, taken from one of the first albums recorded by the Ivorian composer Okoi Seka Athanase in 1977.

This album includes the following musicians (any further informations are welcomed) :

Okoi Seka Athanase : Lead Vocals ;

Bouadou Ernest : Solo Guitar ;

Really beautiful song, that reminds some of the best Afro Latin tracks by legendary Congolese bands & musicians (Tabu Ley Rochereau & L’Orchestre Afrisa International, Franco & his T.P. OK Jazz, Dr Nico, …). Enjoy !
