Orchestre le Peuple – Tchiatchibi le Peuple
Grand Zeer


Het is de eerste keer dat ik dit label zie, Grand Zeer uit Brazzaville.
De band hebben we wel eerder laten passeren, le Peuple heeft
hier reeds een stuk of zes albums gehad. Bezetting van de groep
wisselt kennelijk nog wel eens, enige vaste waarde lijkt Kosmos
Moutouari te zijn. Hoe dan ook, wederom een heerlijke plaat.
De hoes is flink versleten maar de muziek klinkt nog prima.

It is my first encounter with this label, Grand Zeer from Brazzaville.
The band has passed by on several earlier occasions though, le Peuple
was here some six times before. The group’s line-up seems to vary
evry time, only one appearing on a regular basis is Kosmos Moutouari.
One way or the other, this is another beauty not to miss out on.
Its sleeve is quite worn out but the record sounds just fine.

    Thanks, Moos. I have no doubt Kosmos was magnet enough to hold together a succession of bands. The guy had the sweetest tenor I’ve ever heard.

    Moos I am often jealous of your sources for records. I can’t find gems like this anywhere else.
