Born in Latin America and inspired by African roots, rumba has taken a remarkable return trip to the Congo, where it continues to inspire dancers and musicians. With over 50 years on the stage, Bumba Massa has lived the history of this music from its earliest days. A singer in the Lovy Orchestra of Zaïre, with the star Vicky Longomba, then in OK Jazz with the mythical Franco, before working under the wing of the pioneering Henri Bowane. After his exile to Lomé in Togo at the end of the 1970s, he struck out on his own. A founding member of the Kékélé revival orchestra, founded by Africa's answer to Berry Gordy of Motown, Ibrahima Sylla, Bumba Massa never lost his faith - or his touch. His velvet voice and his rolling diction are still addictive. And this V70, recorded in Paris with the very best of Congo's Franco stylists, proves it across all eleven of these dazzling pieces from Bumba Massa, including a salute to the memory of his mentor Vicky Longomba in a torrid medley. An album for light hearts and nimble feet. © BM/Qobuz

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their guitar-soaked electric music has become a category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard. And Western rockers have often been attracted to this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

Let’s Head for Cape Verde

Ever since the Portuguese annexed this collection of desert islands in the 15th century to make it a slave trade hub, the Black and Portuguese populations have mixed over time to give birth to a brand new language and brand new music—each island more or less developing its own style—, transforming the Cape Verdean dry lands into a bottomless talent pool.

The Great History of Malian Music

Mandingo traditions or urban intersections, ancestral chants from the griots or dance bands on the day following the Independence, the family tree of Malian music possesses deep roots, leafy branches and a strong sap. Let’s take a look back at the fascinating history.
