About Les Mangalepa
Congolese musicians who settled in Nairobi, Kenya, Les Mangalepa became one of the biggest bands in East Africa in the late 70s, when they recorded these tracks. Sweet and soulful, this is music that bridges the gap between early "golden age" sounds like rumba and the then fomenting soukous. Based in Nairobi, Les Mangalepa are sovereigns in their own musical kingdom 'Le Royaume Mangalepa' - which extends far beyond Kenya to encompass Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Malawi, Zambia and DR Congo (ex-Zaïre).
