Cooperative un point un trait - Kiamukoko (Early 80s Soukous in Paris)


A Muzzicaltrips favorite. To have an idea of the mood of this bloody song, "Quelle ambiance!" repeated many times in the song means "what a great atmosphere"...

Listen to the track entirely: after the disco intro, first part is really african soul, no doubt on these rhythms and great voice (sings in lingala I guess, cf Mwamy Menghe), but 2nd part sounds is an irresistible dancing machine...
As it has been recorded in France ("ça vient de Paris" he sings), the band was composed from african diaspora based in Paris (from Congo and Gabon).
