Johnny Bokelo – Sakina Shakara Music 1982

Johnny Bokelo, front

Goodmorning, it’s been a few weeks but here we are with the
next Congolese lp. I’ve been out on a short trip to Istanbul.
If you get the chance to visit that wonderful city, take it, it’s
beautiful and offers a variety of scenes you really should see.
Something else, yesterday was International Recordstore
Day and we were lucky. The weather was really good and
I got the first chance to play in the open air with my mobile
soundsystem. At my friends recordstore ”t Oor’ here in my
hometown several groups did a short gig and I took care of
filling in the gaps. We had a lovely afternoon and the overall
feeling was one of happiness. The group you see was play-
ing all sorts of party sounds based on reggae, ska and other
feelgood styles with funny Dutch lyrics, everybody loved it.
Their name is ‘Goeiemiddag’. ( Dutch for good afternoon )
The lp I am posting today is one I coincidentally found
last week when checking out an Amsterdam second
hand store, take it while you can, get it & spread it..

    Hi moos, excellent this LP just what I was looking for, a couple of weeks seeking intensively, it seems that you had read my thoughts.<br /><br />Glad you find yourself funny in his hometown, as I hope to return to mine.

    Wish I lived just down the street from you, Moos, so we could have coffee or a beer or a spliff or a listening session whenever we felt like it in real life — but this is pretty real, isn&#39;t it? But you really touched me with your Record Store Day story. Love from one nutcase to another — and I&#39;m one in real life not just on the web. Stay strong.

    Did I already say how much I loved your postings and your real life, etc. or was it swallowed by the googlester blogness monster of proving I&#39;m a human being not an Elephanr Man or whatever? Well, I dig what you&#39;re doing, Mr. Moos. My eternal gratitude, love (from one nutcase to another) and respect.
