Mangelepa – Kwasa-Kwasa Dance Gramma Records 1989

Mangelepa, front

Who remembers les Mangelepa ? It is one of those Congolese
groups that moved to Kenya and made lots of records there. This lp
is from 1989 and was released by Gramma and produced by Bothwell
Nyamhondera & Henry Peters. Label and first producer
I only knew from Zimbabwan artist Thomas Mapfumo, now
with Mangelepa. They call this music Kwasa-Kwasa
dance, a type of soukous also made by for
instance Pépé Kallé, listen
and dance away..


1 Cherie tracy
2 Tosambela nzambe
3 Kamulabi
4 Mokili

    Thanks for this! Lots of good album excerpts by them up on Youtube, but the albums themselves seem very hard to come by. At least I've got a bunch of Mupfumo on my buy-for-me list for the holidays. ;)

    Thank You! I've been looking for this album! The dance around this period (Mid/Late 80's) was Kwassa Kwassa, but the genre and rhythm is Soukous.
