Zitany Neil - Marcory Gasoil (1988)

A year before the Soukous Stars was born as a band, the group of soukous stars got together to produce this album of hit songs for Zitany Neil. Dally Kimoko, Lokassa, Pablo Lubadika, Shimita, Awilo: they are all here and in top form. Zitany Neil is from Congo-Brazzaville, and has a sweet, high voice. No further words are necessary. Just listen. But be prepared to dance!

I dont know the language or the lyrics of these tunes, but if I can
say that when this album came to Colombia was a
true musical explosion. every corner, where
beaks were ringing the old sound system with
pictures wonderfull . This album arrive several times or many copies in the year 88.
The song "Tantina"
That reminds me of one in particular rang was one of my Favorites "El Rojo - La Cobra de Barranquilla"

Here :

today no longer exists, but it was in this that I first heard.
always been my favorite since childhood.
in this era was ending the era of the old sound system in my city and in 1990 changed shape

the song, Tantina.
continues to hear this tune in radio stations and some moderns picós as a classic of african music

Many thanks,

Thank you Fabian, for relating how this music has affected you in the past, and penetrated your country as well as mine. Gracias también para las champetas, las que me ensenaron un tipo de música que antes no me se conocía. Ya he comprado unos CDs de champeta para aprendir más.

Stay tuned! There is a lot of music to come.
