African Music / Re: Nonexisting Empire Bakuba album?

I am not familiar with it but it obviously was made after Pepe Kalle's death.
But the samples still sound very good, so I recommend.

African Music / Nonexisting Empire Bakuba album?
« Last post by LeFranck on July 01, 2017, 07:57:57 pm »
I was on my frequently music hunt when I stumbled over this "album" on Apple Music.
I have never heard of this album (Papy Tex & Empire Bakuba - Wasiwa) before and no info exists on the web.
The artwork on the cover is really amatour.
Not even the titles are found anywhere. You can listen to samples of the songs.
Mystery
Please enlighten me if possible.

Somehow the link does not lead me  to the songs, so I may not help without listening.

On the Les Noirs, they were was originally based in Congo. Some band members later crossed to Kenya. The lead vocalist in the first song Tchiku, Moreno Batamba, and kalemby Kajos were some of them . They later settled in Kenya.

But there was also another established band called Les Kinoirs  comprising of Samba mapangala and Kasule Mopepe and other who also set their base in Kenya.

That's all I can remember from my young days
