African Music / 20th Anniversary
« Last post by tutulu on March 17, 2016, 03:57:47 pm »
I just uploaded clips of the

2oth anniversary concert of the Orchestre Empire Bakuba.

I believe, if my dates are correct,  that the concert was in 1992.

Enjoy

Looking at the faces, esp. Manu Dibango and Rochereau, I think this picture must have been taken somewhere in the early 80s.

Thanks for sharing, Tutulu!

This same Peter Toll, who is mentioned in the article, brought Simba Wanyika to Holland where I was lucky enough to see the two Kinyonga brothers performing together. Those were the days!

African Music / The Beat

This article takes one down memory lane.

about Late Peter Wilson Kinyonga's passing.

Simba Wanyika was one of the best bands playing in Nairobi during the heyday of East Africa’s music scene, which also included powerhouse groups such as Les Mangelepa, Orchestra Virunga, and a wealth of others who, now those glory days of the ‘80s and ‘90s have passed, are mostly of interest only to record collectors, music historians, and aficionados of East African rumba.

This feature from The Beat was published in 1993 on the occasion of the death of George Peter Kinyonga, one of two brothers who established the Wanyika dynasty and created some of the best East Africa music ever made. Peter commemorates the life and career of George, and the story of the great Simba Wanyika, enlivened by his personal reminiscences and a discographer’s attention to their convoluted history.

This is picture of

giants alongside each other

Cameroun's Manu Dibango, Late Dr. Nico Kasanda, Late Roger Izeidi and Late Seigneur Ley.

I do not know if this was when they were all members of Le Grand Kalle's African Jazz.
