Sam Mangwana, l’Intérnational – Les Chiens Aboient, La Caravane Passe, RAS 1981

Sam Mangwana, front

This LP by Sam Mangwana is on the Nigerian RAS label, I am
not exactly sure but it seems to be a Nigerian recording.
Either way, it spins just fine. The title of this album
does not come from one of the tracks, does it mean
life goes on?


1 Toboyi te
2 Chérie Magy

4 A la Camerounaise

    First, a lot of thanks for all the good music you offer to us all.

    I’m glad to give you my explanation about that funny title.

    You miss it if you don’t understand french, and it’s really a shame, but Sam Mangwana is very fond of french proverbs.

    Les chiens aboient, la caravane passe is a proverb from arab origin which means something like “Let them bark, we go on”.

    François from Provence

    Sam Mangwana is not Nigerian, he is from Congo (kinshasa).

    Zaiko Langa Langa Familia Dei has an album of the same name.
    Sam Mangwana was born in Kinshasa to Angolan parents.
