de Brazzaville a la Havane avec
Les Bantous de la Capitale
vol. 1, Socodi

Les Bantous, front

Goodmorning groovers, it’s been some time since we’ve
seen them here. Les Bantous de la Capitale had quite some
albums passing by over the years. The one we have today
is a Congolese pressing on Socodi ( societé Congolaise du
Disque ) which we hadn’t seen so far. It contains some good
songs and some, let’s say, weepies. All together I think it’s
a historic document. With the participation of Nino Malapet,
Jean Serge Essous, Passy Mermans, Pamelo Moun’ka, Edo,
Samba Mascott, Celestin and Pandy, enjoy listening..

    Wow. I have a number of these on other albums, but looking forward to this from one of my very favorite bands.

    I stand corrected! I have not heard any of these versions before. A gem! Thank you for the opportunity to hear them!

    It has taken me a while to unpack this music and listen, but what a wonderful , wonderful album. Thanks, Moos, just made my day.
