Zaïko Langa-Langa – Jetez l’Éponge,Prozal / SIM’s 1989

Zaïko Langa-Langa, front

Zaïko Langa-Langa was not only a group of musicians, they
were also famous for the dances they initiated. Some of which
became quite popular, like the ‘cavacha’ and the ‘zekete-zekete’.
On this 1989 album, the tracks on side-a are all melted together
and will make you dance untill you drop. Jivin’ hot material I’d say.

    This is one of my favorite bands. I first started listening to King Sunny in the 80’s at the same time I was mostly listening to punk (go figure). When I found your blog I was in heaven! Thank you so much.

    Thanks again for all your work. Trying to download this gem, I found a notice that the file belongs to a suspended account. I hope it was a mistake. I hate to think that you must go through this once again. Best wishes, John A.

    This classic LP was originally released in 1985, spanning such hits such as Dindo Yogo's "Mokili Echanger", Bassist Oncle Bapius's "Zizita", and Nyoka Longo's "SVP Mbey".

    Hi Moos, thanks for another great post on your authentic BlogSpot! This is a marvellous classic piece from Zaiko Langa-Langa from 1985, don&#39;t know why on Earth the label says 1989, maybe the recording engineers got sleepy when they were typing the labels up XD<br /><br />I hope your new-and-improved Global Groove Blog is coming along pretty well and will be fixed in soon with a self-host for
