Simaro's unknown CD: Shako

I have a opportunity to give you something to enjoy during the summer. This is a good time for me. 

I am speaking of the album by the genius poet himself Simaro Lutumba. This album is called Shako. But this album is unique because this album has two combinations. Let focus on the last four songs before I go into the two songs. 

I am going on the other four songs that come from the Simaro and TPOK Jazz album. This is work from OK Jazz likely from 1988-89 period because we hear the voice of Malage de Lugendo. I also hear the voice of Djo Mpoyi, Josky Kiambukuta, and Madilu System. This work I don't believe involve any rhythm guitar of Simaro Lutumba himself. It is said that these four songs have no composition from Simaro. The songs that I am talking about are Eliana, Nakosenga, Kiwelelele, and Toweli.  Three of those songs give you the idea of the dance Mayeno and Djo Mpoyi was the important man because he was all apparent in all four songs. Notice also there are more studio musician…

Mayeno, oh Mayeno Mayeno is, Mayeno will be, what is about Mayeno

At least not know. I don't want to do it now. 

Another thing in my way is one of my brother has a graduation party tomorrow and it is not going great. We cannot agree on anything. My brother wants his mostly western songs and my parents want no English speaking songs or English songs that are so lame. Worse my parents are obsessed with one particular style of music. This makes me the middle person because I had to decide. I put more this style that I would have like to. 

Now what does the second part have anything to do with the post. It is very related. In fact this conflict leads to the post that I am going to touch. Wh…
