African Memories- Congolese Rumba from the 50s (LP, Pathé Marconi)

Beautiful Congolese rumba compilation made by Gilles Sala, a french musician (from the west-indies) & music activist during the sixties, seventies and eighties. His selection is just the perfect one from the end of the fifties, beginning of sixties. Rock a Mambo is the first congolese rumba orchestra I discovered fifteen years ago...Since, there'e not a week without listening the sweet guitar of Nico...
Gilles Sala made this selection for Pathé after a long trip, "retour aux sources", in Africa.
