I proved myself and they accepted me officially," he says. Despite this newspaper report, Loboko Pasi says he was not stranded in Nairobi but joined Les Noirs in Mombasa in In the mid s Monimambo became a singer with Boma Liwanza and a popular one. In he even started to record with his own band Special Liwanza -- which was probably just a studio band made up of members of Boma Liwanza.
It seems Jim was still with Boma Liwanza in when he wrote one of their big hits, "Milimani". However, around the same time he also started performing with Gelade - Orchestre Fuka Feza - Orchestre Fuka Feza (Vinyl Kalombo Mwanza's new band Viva Makale and that's where he sang with a Zairean artist who had just returned from Tanzania, Moreno Batambo.
Soon after, the two started a new band, Shika Shikabut unfortunately, Moreno wanted to be his own boss, so he moved within a year to form Moja One. I believe Orch. Jimmy Moni Mambo. They quote the lyrics often, and reprise it musically in both "Massa" and "Ma-Sofia. He has most songwriting credits. Monimambo is a surname in Angola; it is also the name of a pan-Kongo trickster spirit! Jimmy was born in Barumbu, Kinshasa of Angolan parents. Many Angolans migrated to the Congo basin in search of work.
Sam Mangwana and Ricardo Lemvo also have Angolan roots. Once Monimambo married a Kenyan woman it was logical for him to settle in Kenya. At the time, she was the girlfriend of Joseph Just, a member of Simba WanyikaLP), Jimmy decided to pursue her. She was family to us, but Jimmy, he grabbed her and disappeared with her. Cavacha was formed by Dona Mobeti tenor voice and Mopero baritone.
Siama's first composition for them was called "Bomoto mabasi. Finally Franco intervened and told Mopero to get a new name. Vicky Shama Shama was Mopero's girlfriend so he chose that as the name of the band and it was also a hit song title by Cavacha de Mopero. Mopero died in West Africa invery sad. Shama Shama band got divided just before the Uganda trip; Mopero got new musicians and went to Uganda and then the band broke up again -- that's why KoKo Zigo convinced me to fly to Uganda and form Kombe Kombe in with Koko Zigo as the singer.
He quit school in to join Orchestre Maquis Sasa Bata. He told me a story of Veve in Uganda they were wildly popularand a club owner who later went to Kinshasa and poached some Veve musicians, to perform in Kampala.
Bana Ngenge was the group that emerged from this undertaking. Peter Toll adds: the formation which arrived in Kampala in was fronted by singers Djodjo Ikomo and Fataki Lokassa, both former members of Orch. Tabou Nationala band that was founded by Tony Dee Bokito in After Tony Dee moved to Mbandaka inseveral musicians left the band and Ikomo started working with Orch. Veve with whom he recorded his song "Maina" Veve Ikomo was also one of the founders of Orch. Bana Modja with whom he released his compostion "Mayatu" Unfortunately, the band split the following year, with Ikomo and Moreno leaving to join Les Noirs.
So, although Bana Moja didn't exist as a band from on that is, until Ikomo's return to Zaire inthe name still continued as a record label. Apparently, in the old days quite a number of musicians were selling and licensing recordings and running their own label. Bangambo seems to have been an earlier band, in Kinshasa Gelade - Orchestre Fuka Feza - Orchestre Fuka Feza (Vinyl Rigo Star on guitar. Jojo also recorded with Orch. Bassanga on the ASL label. Dieudos left Kenya and returned to Zaire in the early 80s where he played with Tiers Mondelater he moved to Belgium and hooked up with Dalienst.
Jojo was later in Empire Bakuba. After the split up of Bana Ngenge inFataki Lokassa moved to Tanzania and carried on with other members of the group for a short while. He died on Dec 11, in Dar-Es-Salaam.
With a new Orch. He later ended up in Empire Bakuba. He first came to Kenya in and returned to Kinshasa in for a relative's funeral but stayed on. In Kenya, the now-aging musician had a daughter, Brigitte, to whom he wishes to bequeath his property in DR Congo. The outfit later split three ways to create Vundumuna, Ibeba System and Virunga.
But Moreno went solo. He mainly sang in Kiswahili and the themes of his songs varied from social commentaries like "Dunia ni Duara," "Mapenzi ya Shinda" and "Mwanamke Hatosheki," to love songs like "Angela" and "Pili Mswahili. His chart topper was "Vidonge Sitaki," based on a Taraab song by Golden Star, but sadly he died the same year, aged only High-voiced Lovy Mokolo Longomba came in the middle of a distinguished family. His twin sons Christian and Lovy are hip-hop stars in Kenya today.
Lovy started his career at 18 with Orchestre Macchi. After only 6 months with Boma LiwanzaLovy was off again, to join Super Mazembe of Mutonkole Longwa Didos, and got the nickname "Ya Mama" because he would sing the high women's part in story songs. He recorded several solo albums produced by Felix Jakomo. He even quotes "Tika na lela"! He was a founder of Ibeba Systemalong with Dhago Mayombe, but never recorded with them.
In Lovy went to Dar es Salaam and performed with Orch. Afriso Ngoma. Lovy Longomba died in a car crash in Tanzania in The latter wrote five of their hits, including "Bibi moke," which were issued on the Jaca label.
Nsilu wa Bansilu Manitcho who was in Japan, but is now back in Kenya, doing Gospel music of Bana Ngenge was also in the band, occasionally playing bass: he's name-checked in the song "Tina. Born in the Congo inhe grew up at a Jesuit school where he had unlimited access to the music room.
We played in the same club Monday to Friday. We kind of mixed the two bands together and lived in the same house -- all of us together for maybe a year. We moved to Kenya in with Coco Zigo, while others went back to Zaire.
With Moja One I contributed ideas, composed, and played rhythm guitar parts. After playing with Losaka in and Shangoya Siama started Marimba Africa in Minneapolis, where he now lives. He died in a Nairobi hospital in August In Boma Liwanza dissolved and Frantal starred with Shika Shika until their dissolution two years later.
In he helped form Vundumuna out of the break-up of Virungawhich featured his pal Nsilu Wabansilu Manysho whom he met in Kampala, and who had gone from Boma Liwanza to Shika Shika with him.

See my review on Music of Congo page 4 Not to be confused with next disc! This LP is special for obvious reasons: the music is of high quality and in the tradition of Baba Ilunga wa Ilunga "Gaston" himself who is noted for his tremendous sense of perfection: This LP has been made more special in the sense that most of the tracks have never been released before. Besides the high quality of music -- not forgetting the best quality of recording -- there are other important factors which make this LP to be even more Special.
He was born 5th July at Likasi -- about kilometers east of Lumbumbashi, the capital of Shaba Province in the Republic of Zaire. His main interest in music was prompted by the church choir. When he was nine years old, Baba Ilunga wa Ilunga was a member of the Roman Catholic Church Choir at Likasi and Lumbumbashi and he attributes his initial success in music to his first teacher -- Joseph Kiwele -- who composed so many religious songs in Shaba Province in the early fifties.
Baba Ilunga wa Ilunga became a professional musician between and when he joined an all-white group -- the Orchestre de la Sabene -- in Lumbumbashi. It is while in this orchestra when he composed what was to become his famous hit -- Baba Gaston. Baba Ilunga wa Ilunga owes his success in the field of profession music to his late Greek teacher -- Leonidas Rapitis -- who was a noted composer and pianist in the Republic of Zaire.

Bana means offspring and they were literally from the same family. They were called "Belgicains," because they studied abroad, when they returned they were shunned by their parents for taking to music so moved to N'Djili, Zaire on their return. Because of family pressure they did not tour and perform but rather concentrated on recording and issuing 45s.

I don't think there's a connection to Vercky's band Bella Bella that was one of the giants of the era, but there may be with Bella Mambo, an offshoot formed by Kanda Bongo Man.
First of all the whole thing is less than half an hour, and secondly it was recorded, it seems to me, at the wrong speed, so all the tracks sound too fast. Plus the last one sounds like it was recorded on a cheap tape deck off the radio! I doubt that was the band's intention.
The whole thing is also overmodulated, to really ruin your enjoyment of this band, but then again I am not sure it IS Boma Liwanza. The best track on here is "Cafe con Leche," the most amazing take off of OK Jazz ever achieved by another band.
The guitarist goes off on one of those demonic two-fingered leads between choruses and is egged on by people yelling "Juba," one of whom sounds like Sam Mangwana. According to kentanzavinyl.

George Kalombo had started in a band called Bakoka also the name of a town in the heart of the Congo, and a label in Kenya and then gone East to Northwestern Tanzania, to Mwanza my conjecture, since he added that to his namewhere he formed Orch Bassanga with Monimambo Jim. His most successful band was Viva Makale. Siama Matuzungidi recalls: "There were a few recordings: some of them I and Lomboto played and the guitarist Jacques he went back to Zaire in the 80s -- I forget his other name was still using the name Bwambe Bwambe in recordings.
But the actual band was broken up already before we arrived. I believe all these used to be in Bwambe Bwambe. Facing difficulties he left and joined Okessa. Then joined Bantou Succes in Mombasa.

In they moved to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, and two years later to Mombasa to join the burgeoning Congolese exile music scene in Kenya. Here, like much of this cohort, they became as much a "Kenyan" group as a Congolese one. Various problems, notably with residency permits, forced the band to break up some time in the late '70s or early '80s, and the members scattered to the four winds.

From that moment onwards his career steadily developed and he and his Orchestre Tabou National became one of the best recognised Orchestres in the country. In he joins Orchestre VeVe of Kiamuangana Mateta with whom he enjoyed a lot of success, particularly with songs like "Maina" and "Kaniuka.
