Following to that former post, I wanted to share with you for today “Kinsiona“, a splendid melancholic Afro Soul Jazz Blues track recorded in 1974 by the legendary Congolese musician François “Franco” Luambo Makiadi and backed by his legendary “TP Ok Jazz” Orchestra – Enjoy !

This song was composed by Franco in memory of his young brother Bavon Marie Marie Luambo, died the 5 of August 1970 at the age of 26 in a car accident in the city of Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of the Congo).
