Orchestre Bella-Bella – les frères Soki,african 360.064, 1974

Orchestre Bella-Bella, front

The 300th Congolese post at the Global Groove.
Oh yes my dear visitor, this is wonderful. On ‘african’ we
have this 1974 album by Orchestre Bella-Bella. It is
another jewel from Congo’s seventies you don’t want
to miss. Number 360.064 was still absent in our list
but today that finally changes. The brothers Soki
wrote some fine songs and ‘african’ took care of
a nice atmospheric cover for the album.
Pure gold.
