(5 out of 5 stars)
"A feast of fast-paced Zairean/Congolese soukous in which a host of great names are queuing up to lead an all-star ensemble with compositions of their own. The 'Stars' are: Lokassa Ya Mbongo, Daly Kimoko, Shimita, Ballou Canta, Ngouma Lokito, Nene Tchaku, Yondo Sister, and Zitany Neil; and this veritable a-team are supported by the likes of Pablo Lubadika, Wuta Mayi, and Lovy. Basically you have input from the African All-Stars, Zaiko, Bozi Anti-choc, and other former greats, coming together in Paris to compile an album of incredible energy. The pace is relentless, and the rich African vocal and guitar talent is matched by a vigorous Parisian horn section.Check out MARA (track 6) to sample the upfront lead guitar of Nene, or DALY SWING (track 7) to feast on Daly's own wicked dillying...Total music: 64 minutes"
