2005 release. Nyboma Mwan'dido was one of the most popular singers in Zaire (now known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo) when, in 1981, he and his guitarist, Dally Kimoko, moved to Lomé, Togo, for a long-term engagement with the African All-Stars. There, under the name Nyboma & Kamalé Dynamique, they recorded Doublé Doublé, an album that blended Congolese soukous, West African highlife, Caribbean zouk, and American disco into a new dance sensation.

Loketo founder Diblo Dibala's smoothly syncopated 16th-note patterns virtually define 1990s soukous. Bearing an impeccable pedigree--including stints with the legendary Franco's TPOK band in Zaire and with Kanda Bongo Man in Paris--Diblo formed Loketo (which means ''hips'') with vocalist Aurlus Mabele in the mid-'80s. Released about the time Loketo broke up (1990), Soukous Trouble is as fine an album as this memorable live band ever recorded. The title track celebrates Mabele's sizzling

A singer who got his start in Rochereau's African Fiesta 66, switched sides to join Franco's TPOK Jazz, and went on to lead the African All Stars, Sam Mangwana is one of the greats of modern Congolese music.

In addition to Mangwana originals, the tracks include classics by Empompo Loway, Tino Baroza and Dechaud Mwamba. The
