My take on Orchestre Kiam

This band is a very underrated band from the label Veve during the 1970s era. Really this band maybe one of the most underated bands during the 1970s era. But this band had a unique sound that was different from Les Kamale, Empire Bakuba, Veve, TPOK Jazz, Zaiko Langa Langa, and Lipua Lipua.

This band includes some interesting personnels. They include Bakolo Keta, Adoli, Djuke, Lele N'Sundi, Dezai, and Kady. Also it included the man who would be a session musician and collobrate with Zaiko Langa Langa name Adios Alemba.

This band would be somewhat popular in some time. They made some classic songs during the 1970s. They made some notable songs including Mofi Afonda, Kamiki, and Ngali. But their song that was known for their song Baya Baya. This song definitely helped Orchestre Kiam get some major popularity. This band seemed to have a major promise.

But in the late 1970s, it seemed that Orchestre Kiam had pretty much collapsed. This band just become a foreign band and passed away.

But one up side, one notable member of this band would join Zaiko Langa Langa for some time.
