'Intoxication aplenty' Village Voice USA

In 1970 a group of high-school students from KInshasa inaugurated the 'new wave' of Congo-Zairean popular music which became known to the world as soukous.

Zaiko Langa Langa set a new direction for the hottest dance music in Africa, weaving their magic through voice, rhythm and and mesmerising guitars. In 1976 they brought their dynamic act to Ghana where they recorded some of their most enduring hits. More than just an historic collection this album is a celebration of the best in energising dance music.
