this encapsulates some of their best-loved material since the ‘70s, re-recorded and brought up to date using the current, boundlessly talented personnel of their Nairobi Vibro residency. Comprising Congolese musicians who settled in Kenya, Les Mangelepa helped drive the East African evolutionary spur of one of the greatest musical artforms, African rumba, during the 1970s. Alongside a spectacular horn section, they were known for their tight vocals and bittersweet, poetic lyrics and, during the late ‘70s, Mangelepa’s stage shows were an unsurpassed, breath-taking circus. They represent a wonderful era of African music and justifiably warrant the title ‘Last Band Standing’. check this out if you love orchestra baobab as much as we do!
