Tonight's episode is dedicated to music from the Heart of Africa - the Democratic Republic of Congo and it's sister Congo-Brazzaville. Classics from the legends Franco and his TP OK Jazz International, Tabu Ley Rochereau, Le Grand Kalle Kabasele, and Mbilia Bel in the first hour before a gradual progression to today's emerging talents. Listen out for Mbongwana Star and Konono No.1.
We'll be ending with a look to the future - KOKOKO! and my 4 favourite selections from Les Mamans Du Congo's excellent eponymous debut! Tune in and enjoy yourself.
