Ambiance Congo / The Other Black Music presents:

Happy New Year!

Your host has been exposed to Covid, so to protect my fellow DJs and WRIR volunteers, I will not be presenting a live program from the studio this time.

Please enjoy a rebroadcast of the first show of 2021.

The track list will be added here after the show.

Thank you for your support and I’m looking forward to being back for another great year with more great music!

David

Ambiance Congo / The Other Black Music presents:

A toast to Le Grand Maitre, Brussels 1961

WELCOME!

Today we start off in honor of the late great Grand Maitre Luambo Makiadi “Franco” and his Tout Puissant OK Jazz.

October 12, 1989 was a sad day for the world when Franco passed. I was at work when I heard the news and it was like being stabbed in the heart.

So we start with three songs in his memory, one short to begin and two longer pieces, one a request from my friend Alan, maker of the famous “The Rumba Kings”  film which premiered here in Richmond last month.

Then…more.

We will have new music today as well so stay tuned!
