Tshala Muana was one of those, and this is a great album showcasing the traditional mutuashi rhythms she incorporated into her repertoire.
Souzy Kasseya arranged the album and provided solid lead guitar, supported by a stellar band including Maika Munan and Miguel Yamba on guitars, and Manu Lima and Phillippe Guez on keyboards. Only on one cut do programmed drums intrude, while on "Kapinga," the opening cut on side two, the synthesized sounds work perfectly.
This album was produced by the brilliant Ibrahima Sylla, and it reflects his astute packaging of talent to reach a global audience. Now it reaches you.
