A while back, someone sent me a bunch of old tapes picked up in Kinshasa. This collection of 7-inches by the great, under-hyped Congolese group Orchestre Kiam makes a strong case for delving into the world of Central African melodic guitar ninjas and hi-hat samurais. I’ve got a tons of old soukous tapes like this that I often neglect. This one no longer. Good summertime music I plan to spin freely this week.
