Tabu Ley Rechereau – Pesa Le Tout / Moto Akokana Nzambe Akosukisa / Fetiche / l’Age de l’Amour

Posted on Updated on

RIP Congolese Rumba and soukous phenomenon Tabu Ley Rochereau, known to some as the ‘African Elvis,’ to others as ‘The Voice of Lightness.’ Here are four favorite tunes of his. Of the four I think ‘Fetiche’ and ‘l’Age de l’Amour’ are the most ‘Voice of Lightness’-y. Great horns throughout, and because it’s African it must necessarily be in some wise danceable.
