Orchestre Les Noirs
Pathé Marconi / EMI 1975

Orchestre Les Noirs, front

Always a thrilling experience when walking into an album
like this one. The Pathé Marconi EMI recordings selected
by Fayette Blaise Mikano in the seventies are often very
promising. Take this lp by Orchestre Les Noirs, none of
the members of this group have familiar sounding
names. Not to me that is. They travelled through
Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania for some years
with huge succes. Founded in 1966 in the
Republic of Zaïre. This one is from 1975,
get it and spread it..

Track #3 at the end and track #4 at
the beginning sound a bit shrill, it is in
the recording though, we
must take it like it is..

    You just made my day–or at least, my early evening. Thanks!
