For today, I wanted to share with you “Ndolo“, a stormer Afro Disco Synth Soul Makossa track, taken from an album recorded at studio Synthésis in Paris (France) & self-released by the mythical Cameroonian composer & musician Bill Loko, with the help of another great Cameroonian figure, the legendary composer & arranger Dhin Ndjocke-Ebongue, better known as “Michot Dinh” (on music, keyboards, guitar, bass guitar & percussion).
