Olivier de Coque "Messiah messiah" 45T (Olumo)


Ce disque est, d'après mes infos, le premier 45T d'Olivier de Coque, célèbre guitariste Nigérian, issue de l'ethnie Igbo. Il lança sa carrière en 1976 avec ce disque, avant de publier l'album du même nom en 1977 avec sa formation The Expo 76 (on leur doit pas loin de 73 albums...). Il inventa le style "Ogene", un hybride de highlife, de sons traditionnels igbos et de musique congolaise. Un style dans lequel le jeu de guitare rappelle celui des congolais, c'est d'ailleurs Piccolo, un guitariste zaïrois installé au Nigeria qui fut son professeur...C'est aussi lui que l'on entend à la guitare sur le mythique album de Prince Nico Mbarga "Sweet mother". Il nous a quitté l'an dernier en juin à l'age de 61 ans, r.i.p...
(sur la face B le titre est "Mbanene ayi ekene", mais il semble bien qu'il n'y ait que "messiah messiah" en deux parties sur les deux faces, j'ai joint les deux)

According to my sources this record is the first 45T from Olivier de Coque, a famous Nigerian guitarist of Igbo origin. He launched his career in 1976 with this record, before bringing out an album with the same name in 1977 with his band ìThe Expo 76 (They have recorded around 76 albums !). he invented the "Ogene" style, a kind of hybrid of Highlife, traditional Igbo songs and
Congolese music. The guitar playing in this style is not unlike the Congolese style and in fact it was Piccolo, a Zairean guitarist working in Nigeria who was one of his professors, whom we can also hear on the guitar on Prince Nico Mbarga mythical album "Sweet Mother". He died last year at the age of 61.- R.I.P.
( The title on the B side is "Mbanene ayi ekene" but it seems that there ís just "Messiah, messiah"
on both sides, I ve included both)
