For today, I wanted to present you a super obscure one and only 12 inches 4 track EP recorded in the 80’s in Paris by the Congolese artist Albert Siassa, originary from Pointe-Noire.

I decided to make you discover “Escale (Bolingo)”, a nice #Afro Boogie track recorded with drum machines – but the whole EP is great and in the same vein !!
