Wendo Kolosoy - On the Rumba River

CHF 9.00 / EUR 8.00

Along the Congo River sails a boat which never sank. A boat called «Rumba». At the helm, Papa Wendo, 82 years young, continues to sing his Rumba, the irresistible music that sets alight the eyes of dancers, and conjures up soft and sad nostalgia.

At the end of 2004, and perhaps for the last time, Wendo went back into the recording studios as part of «On the Rumba River», a film about him directed by Jacques Sarasin. Just like a return upstram to the source, this CD also features some of the film's sound track as well as recordings made in 1950 and 1992.
