Fato - Where I Am From

Fato - Where I Am From

Playing tracks by

Henri Bowane, Ry-Co Jazz, Franco , Rochereau, Sam Mangwana & L'African Fiesta National, Zaiko Langa Langa and more.

After digging in my father's vinyl collection, I found back some sounds from my childhood. And I wanted to share those sounds with you, LDBK listeners.

While preparing this mix, a question popped up in my mind: Does the DCR (Democratic Republic of Congo) have something else to offer musically speaking?

The next step was to use the internet to dig more deeply into the musical past of the DCR. And that's where things became really interesting. Some Congolese musicians have played blues, rock, salsa,... various kind of music actually. I knew that it could exist but it is something totally new to me as I was always surrounded by the same kind of Congolese artists: Koffi Olomidé, Werrasson, JB Mpiana, ...

Now I have other questions: Can we find jazz artists in Congo? Is there an electronic music scene? And so many others … Expect more mixes in a near future.
