T.P. O.K. Jazz - Fariya

This is a lesser known single from Franco's orchestra written by Kiambukuta Londa and released in 1977. The song is also on Franco's LP African 360.105 which was shared by Moos in 2009. Let's hope that he will find the right solution for his blog problems.

Meanwhile enjoy this! New link after WS' comment.

  2. ''Le Grand Maitre Dial Africa.'' We all love Franco!

  3. fantastically great song - here are some comments by AboubacarSiddikh on his youtube upload (

    "This is the composition in which Josky found his style, defined his artistic identity within O.K. Jazz, grew up.

    In Fariya, Josky used a rhythm that was inspired by an Angolan group called San Salvador. This rhythm would return in many variations in his compositions since.

    We hear him sing with a newly found confidence, toghether with Youlou Mabiala, Ndombe Opetum and possibly Lukoki Diatho.

    In the first part of the song, Franco plays the fills after every vocal line, then in the second part, the reeds play the fills during the chorusses and the copper during Josky's solos.

    With Ntoya - batterie (mainly hi-hat), Dessoin - percussion, rhythm guitar - possibly Makosso (otherwise Gégé Mangaya), "solo guitar" - maybe Gerry Dialungana, bass - Mpudi Decca or Flavien Makabi.

    Comments by Josky recorded in 1991, Bxl."

    1. Thank you for this addition. I've heard the song on YouTube but didn't pay attention to the comments there. What a lapse.

  4. I have downloaded it twice just to be sure, but there seems to be a problem with the speed of the recording. It is quite a bit faster than the lp-version. Josky is singing far too high and Youlou is almost unrecognisable.

    Otherwise: keep up the good work!!

  5. I've compared my rip with moos' and slowed my turntable down. You're right that the result seems to be better this way. Here is the link to a new rip.
    The LP rip still sound - I think - better.
