The voice of lightness! Such a chill groove!
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.
Wow. Great guitars & vocals throughout this track by Congolese Soukous artists Koffi Olomide & Josky Kiambukuta Londa.
Enchanted by this track just now. A marathon groove of enthusiastic, charming smoothness.
