Verckys présente
Manuaku Waku et le Grand Zaïko Wawa
Eke Ya Pamba, Editions VéVé International 1983

Great minds think alike they say, hihi, it is a funny coincidence.
I just found out that Jillem, the host of Holland Tunnel Dive, and
myself are exploring the same corner of Congolese music. It is no
contest of course. We just complete each other. I have tried to leave
comments at his great page but can’t seem to find out how to do this.
Let me know Jillem. The Verckys stable brought forth so many won-
derful artists. Manuaku Waku is just one of many. This one is from
1983. Solid listening materal I’d say, enjoy ..

Great minds think alike zeggen ze, hihi, het is heel toevallig. Ik ontdek
zojuist dat Jillem, de host van Holland Tunnel Dive, en ik dezelfde hoek
van de Congolese muziek aan het verdiepen zijn. Het is natuurlijk geen
wedstrijd, we vullen elkaar mooi aan zo. Ik heb al diverse malen gepro-
beerd een berichtje bij hem achter te laten maar kan niet ontdekken
hoe, laat me dat eens weten Jillem. De Verckys stallen hebben talloze
artiesten voort gebracht waarvan deze Manuaku Waku er slechts een is.
Dit album is uit 1983. Degelijk luister materiaal, geniet ervan ..

    Thanks Moos! Felix Manuaku was the lead guitarist for Zaiko Langa Langa from inception till 1980 when he formed Grand Zaiko.

    Worth noting that Manuaku Waku was the original guitarist (and maybe the greatest early star) of Zaiko Langa Langa who basically brought in the style of guitar and sebene solos that remained popular through the 70s and 80s. This is his breakaway group.

      Hi Anonymous, I have also tried several times but have no idea how to reach Jillem ..
      I guess he’s not interested to get any response, up to him of course.

    Hey Moos I think I’ve asked the question before but do you have Papa Omar by Zaïko Langa Langa released in 1986.
