Kin-Bantou – Kin-Bantou Sonafric SAF 61006, 1978

Kin-Bantou, front

I kept wondering for years, after seeing this album cover
on the backsleeve of other Sonafric releases, how would
it sound ? Today we finally solve the mystery. Kin-Bantou,
is it the name of a group or man ? I don’t know. What I do
know is that I really love the sound on this wonderful album
and keep playing it over and over now I finally got it. Hope
you’ll feel the same sensation I did when first listening to it.
Get it & Spread it..enjoy..

    Wow, Moos! These are prime rumbas, of the style I like best! And I was completely unaware of this artist. Thanks for sharing it.

    thanks again for great music. As I read in 'Rumba On The River' the Band 'Kin-Bantous' was formed by Etienne Makengela, who was soloist in Dewayon's Orchestre Cobantou in 1969.

    Orchestre Kin-Bantou is the name of the group. A fabulous album that I have loved for many years.<br />Sonafric is one of my favorite labels, producing some of the very best records. Like this one!

    This was one of the many various bands that late multi-talented guitarist/bassist Pablo Lubadika passed through. Thanks for this LP!
