Post-independence Malian orchestras (documentary)

Had never heard of this (French) documentary until today… Can only find a teaser… If you like the great post-independence Malian orchestras (Rail Band, Super Biton…).

Story of “IndĂ©pendance Cha Cha”

Brazzos & Petit Pierre were 2 members of the African Jazz band (with Kabasele, Nico, Roger, Vicky Lokomba and Dechaux Mwamba, Dr Nico’s brother).

They co-wrote the song Independance Cha Cha, back in the 60s for Congo’s independance from Belgium.
Unfortunately, they were never credited…
