Orchestre Flambeau - Benalu / Banzaka Ngai Fifi (African 90.988 B)
The B-side here is written by a certain Mansia Mina Mfoko - yes, better know as Bopol Mansiamina, who was at the time - 1975 - , as far as I found out, working for Tabu Ley and playing with Afrisa International.
The A-side is written by (Augustin) Nsingi Mageda, who was solo guitarist with Les Grands Maquisards until their split in 1974. If that means that the two worked together here? This release is "Flambeau 11" which means that they had their own label in Zaire and that this was already an 11th single?! Until now I couldn't find one other release - and nothing else. Can you help us with more background?
By the way, nice music! Enjoy!
