CD Reviews

Classic Zaiko Langa Langa
Saint Kole | Mt V, NY | 09/29/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recorded in the mid-seventies, this is Zaiko Langa Langa at their best before all of the splits and the addition of synthesizers. This is the raw sound that shook up the Kinshasha scene at the beginning of the 70's, not the slick Paris-based soukous sound. The production is simple, the harmonies are loose, and the three interlocking guitar sound of the band is in full display. The album opens with the Zaiko theme, Zaiko Wa Wa, and none of the songs disappoint.
When Zaiko began they were considered wild and their style forever change the Congolese rumba. Almost all of their albums are out of print, but the truth is that you can't do better than this album."
