Orchestre Sinza Kotoko – Lélé,Edition Music Control

Orchestre Sinza Kotoko, front

We had some of their albums already but this one is quite different.
The tracks are all melted together like we see on many lp’s from
Nigerian and Ghanaian bands. Their lp ’10 Ans d’Animation’ has the
same kind of structure. I am not sure if the line-up on this lp includes
the participation of the Moutouari brothers Michel and Kosmos. The
cover does not give us any useful information on the subject. Their
names do not appear as writers anyway. It is said that this group
once originated the ‘Soukous’ dance’, however on this here lp it
seems the ‘Cavacha’ dance with it’s swift light drums was still
dominant. Soukous was not born yet. Although the sound
quality is not perfect, + two nasty pops at the b-side,
an lp worth it’s while for lovers of the genre.

tracks;

1   Lélé

–    Musicien yé nani
–    Papi
2   Mama na blood

    Soukous comes from the word “secourer” which is French to “shake”. However, the real genre of Soukous wasn’t born until the mid 70’s. Many people will argue and say Tabu Ley was the creator but neither is that true.
