Les Mangelepa – Nyako Konya

Nairobi, Kenya, 1978. The popular Congolese Rumba band Les Mangelepa is finishing a session. Things are going well: they have recorded all the music they planned and still have an hour to kill before giving back the studio keys. How about improvising one last song on the spot?
And this is how ‘Nyako Konya’ was born. A 9 minutes hypnotic jam that’ll eventually become one of their biggest success, earning them a gold record and international acclaim throughout Africa and beyond.
