Orchestre Conga de Bokelo (African 90.852)

This is the "twin" release to my last post. Landa Bango 124 has a phantastic B-side. They are calling "Pablo" several times and I ask myself if there is Pablo Lubadika on guitar?!

Kalle & L'African Team de Paris (African 90.537)

The two songs here are also on the African 360.017 album you can find over at GGs.

But as we are collectors I wanted to offer you my version too. Enjoy! And have a nice Sunday afternoon.

African Hits Vol. 2

Here is the second tape of the African Hits series.

My questions along with my post of volume one remained unanswered. So, it seems that nobody can teel us where those tapes have been compiled and maufactured.

Here are Sam Mangwana, Theo Blaise Kounkou and Bopol Mansiamina with two tracks each.

Orchestre Celi Bitshou - Tembe Na Tembe Ya Nini (African 91.601)

Another find on the African label of a lesser known artist, Celi Bitshou(manou) (or Bitshu, or even Bittsu - GG shared in 2010 an LP under this name) who started his career with Les Bantous in 1962. He joined OK Jazz but left and played during the 1970s for Orch. Lovy, Orch. Somo Somo and Veve until he started his solo career. (A bit more and a discography I've compiled here.)

This one's from 1978.
