“Gitta Productions Présente” by Zaïko Langa-Langa - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1981Album Chart of the Decade: 1980s

TJR says

Recorded at Daniel Léon's Studio Caramel in Brussels and produced by Bula Sepa for Gitta Productions, also of Brussels. The Congolese group had been split with warring factions in recent times, and this was one of two groups running with the name in the early 80s. The lead guitarist role is often considered the most important player in the soukous group and it was also all-change in this regard, the legendary Pepe Manuaku having departed to be replaced by Roxy Tshimpaka. The set features three vocalists/songwriters: Bimi Ombale, Likinga Magenza and N'Yoka Longo, who're accompanied by Oncle Bapuis (bass), Enoch Zamungana (rhythm guitar), Roxy Tshimpaka (lead guitar) and Belobi Meridjo (drums). The comedy voice overs come from Mangobo and Monzali.
