Samba Mascott et les Bantous de la Capitale
Safari Ambiance / Vaudou 1981

Samba Mascott, front

At first I didn’t realise, we had him passing by here in august 2011.
He was on that album called ‘les Grands Succes des Editions Samay’.
It gained many happy listeners I remember.
Today Samba Mascott is here with an album of his own, what can
I say, I think it’s one of the better Congolese lp’s we had so far.
Les Bantous de la Capitale at their peak and Samba’s
wonderful voice to round it all up, sweeet..!
I really need me to find his other records.

    Moos, I have to tell you: I find this album one of the tastiest albums you’ve put up in some time. I’m partial to rumbas, but each cut is distinctive (unlike some modern groups I can think of), and Mascott and his musicians really get in a good, solid, irresistible groove with the sebenes. Thanks again for sharing this.
