Another rare slice of Congolese brought back from Africa by my

door mijn vriend Aidan is deze. Orchestre Continental met Josky

    Thank you for this rare LP. Josky was such a good singer. I never get tired of him.
    I did some searching for this LP but found no info besides of the one you have shared. It looks like the LP is printed around 1975 but have no proof of it.
    I found a Muzinter 02 though. See link:

      I need to make a correction on this album:
      Title for song 04 Nzambe a lalakate is Bakokamua
      Title for song 06 Mwana-Samba is Mayi Baboya.

        some of the songs have been released in CD and digital format if you don’t mind those formats. Nakobondela released as Nakobondela Bolingo, Ya Vero and Mama Na Nicole for sure. Such a great short-lived band.
        i think the band recorded some other singles as Orch. Mamumar after Josky left to join OK Jazz

    04 Nzambe a lalakate is not the correct title for this song: this song title is “Bakokamua”
    06 Mwana-Samba, the correct song title is “Mayi Baboya”

    I think the great Bopol also plays on this, and it is a 1975 compilation of singles from c 1972. THANK YOU MOOS!
