Hmm, it looks like we don’t know much about this album.
Congolese rumba sat at the crest of this wave, and Congo: Pont Sur Le Congo is packed with it. The first of the album's two discs is characterised by a lightness that seems almost superhuman, the luminous quick speed of the guitars, the male singing voices that sweep forward in a shallow inverse parabola and then drift upward, the whole rhythm of things floating and swaying, and everything playful and sexual - such as the singer in Trio Madjesi's.

Marie, "Regina" by OK Jazz, "Dialogue" by Tabu Ley, "Camiya" by Cepakos, and "Maloukoula" by Sinza Kotoko
