    Cool album (1983)… and I clould not call this soukous.

    Yes it’s a good album and occasionally verging full steam into soukous territory; definitely from the Viva la Musica camp ! It’s certainly not Highlife, Juju, Fuji or Mbalax, Benga, Jit jive or Muziki wi dansi, Ethio jazz, morna, chimurenga or afrobeat either. Nor is it any of the myriad of other styles from the big continent but absolutely most certainly Congolais! Viva la Musica indeed!
