in anticipation of the party on Saturday, i stepped in for Moon Wheel on his show The Journey on Berlin Community Radio:
and here is a repost from the old blog, of classic Congolese Rumba, literally the sweetest sounds i have ever heard.
Big big thanks to Bolingo69 for the original upload. It is criminal that these heavenly sounds are out of print and commercially unavailable anywhere. Here are both volumes together on mediafire.
And I’ve been meaning to do an official NGOMA volume of modern dance floor Soukous for some time… it will happen soon. But until then, there are lots of awesome tunes in this episode of Radio Ngoma:
the first 8 volumes in this Reboot.fm radio series. for tracklisting please go to the soundcloud pages for each show. to download of course simply click the downward aarow on the right side of the player for each show.
