l’Empire Bakuba – Adieu Docteur Nico
Mélodie 1986

Empire Bakuba, front

Pepé Kallé and his Empire Bakuba always find a happy
listener. This lp’s from 1986 and is a tribute to Docteur
Nico Kasanda, the legendary guitarist. You may find his
lp’s here too, just use our search-bar. l’Empire Bakuba
does also not appear here for the first time, listen to the
two and agree this is fabulous music..


1 Peri mayel
2 Tout près de toi

5 Muambu
6 Égalité au tombeau

    Great album… I bought this cassette from a child in the Garoua Cameroon market for 500cfa. I loved it so much that I sought the vinyl for years…

    the sound is serious and surprisingly sad and reflective (adjective I wouldn’t usually use for mid-80s Congolese music). I am planning to play this on my show monday to commemorate my dad’s passing.

    Thanks for all your posts!
