Sankayi, Konono Nº1, Orchestre Bambala, Orchestre Bana Luya ‎– Kinshasa 1978 (Originals and Reconstructions)

In stock

$18.00

“Back in 1978, Bernard Treton recorded four ‘tradi-modern’ bands in Kinshasa. These sessions spawned the “Zaïre: Musiques Urbaines à Kinshasa” album (released in 1986 by the Ocora label), a record which, for the first time, presented to Western audiences the electrifying music which was later to be known as “Congotronics”.

This new, twofold album comprises 80 minutes worth of previously-unreleased original recordings made during these 1978 sessions, as well as brand-new reconstructions made by Martin Meissonnier, the highly-respected French producer who worked with the likes of Fela Kuti, Haruomi Hosono & many more, and who has recently resumed his DJ activities.

The album comes as a vinyl LP with the Martin Meissonnier reconstructions, while the previously-unreleased recordings from 1978 appear on a CD which is enclosed in the vinyl cover.”-Crammed Discs
