Youlou Mabiala Dans Lili et Nsona 'Live in Miguel - Casse Coup" Disco Stock DS 7966
That otherwise great album was somewhat ruined by fake audience noise.
Unfortunately the same is true of this solo album by Youlou Mabiala recorded after he left OK Jazz, but the music is so great we just had to post it.
We don't know who Youlou has in this band, but they are really tight and carry on the OK Jazz tradition. Some of the members probably played with OK Jazz.
We especially like the beautiful second track Walimeya, it has great guitars and a thundering bass line. Whoever the bass player is on this record is really great.
