TWIKALE PAKA  NAWE                 download TWIKALE PAKA NAWE                streaming

I would say it's from the '70's and although it's pressed in Zambia it sounds like Swahili to me, so probably it's from Kenya or Tanzania.
It's played by ORCH. SAFARIS - NKOY; the A-side, a nice slow Soul song, "TWIKALE PAKA NAWE" and the B-side, the lively Dancing tune "SINA NDUGU" have this fine organ sounds like you could hear in the music of the Animals & Them in England in the '60's.
I don't know if this music is re-issued on LP or CD, Maybe you do?

INDEPENDANCE CHA CHA              streaming

From the beautiful TV documentary "INDEPENDANCE CHA CHA" by the Belgians Isabelle Christiaens and Jean-François Bastin comes this remarkable version of Grand Kalle's most famous song "INDEPENDANCE CHA CHA", performed by a Kinshasa brass band, who are playing this song first in an open air Matonge disco and at the end while driving around in the back of an open truck in the hectic traffic of the Congolese capital.
In the film this song has been used as the guideline for the story about Congo getting independent in 1960, at the hand of a lot of interviews with young people, "Anciens Combattants" (Old Soldiers, who were fighting with the Belgian army in W.W.II), historians and former fellow musicians of Grand Master Kabasele.
