For today, I wanted to share with you “La Gloire“, a, underground catchy 90s Afro Rap Electro Funk Smurf track with fresh & dope drum machines basslines & DX7 synth use, taken from the 1st album recorded in 1993 by the still active today choregrapher, author, composer & zouglou (musical genre from Ivory Coast) artist Krédou “Ziké” Laurent with the help of the producer, sound engineer & machines programmer Bamba Moussa Yang.
This album features :
Lead vocals : Krédou Ziké Laurent ;
Music, Arrangement, Drum machines (Akai S 1000 EMU 3, D 50, RX 5, DX 7), Guitars & Synthesizer : Bamba Moussa Yang ;
Backing Vocals : Bamba Moussa Yang (A1 to B1), Henri Kattié (A1 to B1), Raymond Akishy (A1 to B1) & Ziké (A1 to B1) ;
Chorus : Awa Maïga & Zenia Caraibe “Lovy” ;
Early 90s Afro Hip Hop tracks are really rare & hard to find on vinyl format, so hope you’ll enjoy !
