Zao - Ancien Combattant (Republic of Congo, 1984, Black Music)



One of the biggest African Anthems by the Congolese Artist Casimir "Zao" Zoba, taken from his first album.

This version is actualy an adaptation from "Petit Imprudent", a song written and composed in 1969 by the guitarist and singer Idrissa Soumaoro, but Idrissa never succeded in his claim.

There is also another cover of this song, recorded in 1973 by the Guinean band Balla Et Ses Balladins.

Ebo Taylor and Uhuru Yenzu - You Need Love (Ghana, 1980, Essiebons)



Instant feel good track by Ebo Taylor, one of the most important and prolific musician, arranger, composer from Ghana.

He relased dozens and dozens of singles and albums with Ghanaian bands and by himself, from the 60's up to now, and is still touring today all over the world and releasing albums and compilations.

This track "You Need Love", is taken from his 5th album, "Conflict Nkru", which is my personnal favourite.

Samba Mascott - Mwana Angola (Congo, 1976, Sonafric)




Joseph Samba "Mascott" Mayanguila was a Congolese singer, born the 15 of August 1943 in the country of Loumou (Republic of Congo).

He played in several famous national orchestras such as "Les Bantous de la Capitale" (former musicians from Orchestre TP OK Jazz and Orchestre Rock-a-Mambo) or "Orchestre National du Congo" (read this article for more informations), and also released a few singles and albums by himself.

He died the 10 of April 1991 in Brazzaville, at the age of 48.

I selected for you "Mwana Angola", a deep acoustic track track he released in 1976 on a Congolese compilation destinate to promote the Samay record Edition.
