A/ KONGA ESPERO

Konga Espero - AFRIKA KOMPILO

In the beginning of the 90s, several Esperantist singers fled from Congo to Europe because of the war (i.a. Zhou-Mack who went to Paris, and Denizo Rock Tamba to Germany), and took part in Vinilkosmo-Kompil’ Vol. 2 in 1996.
On May 18th 2005, Denis Rock Tamba was expulsed from Germany with other Congalese, after sixteen years of exile, leaving his son and his organized life behind.
After returning to Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo), Denis Rock Tamba, who had several musical experiences in Germany (Afrika Espero, La Rolls, etc.), returned to his musical activities in Congo and met with other musicians.
During the ILEI conference that occured in Kinshasa, several Esperantist musicians, writers, and composers from different regions of Congo, met (Viktor Lufimpu, Junior Ngangu, and Denis Rock Tamba), and they had the idea of creating a musical group with various other musicians under the name Konga Espero.
Despite technical difficulties, they succeeded in recording an 8-title mini-album in 2009 in a studio in Kinshasa, B>Kiu lingvo?, and they agreed to add it to the Afrika Kompilo project.
Their music carries us from reggae and zook through latino and funk rock, with themes going from political engagement, world peace, and romance.

B/ Mayoma kun jOmO Afrikumas

Mayoma kun JoMo - AFRIKA KOMPILO

Théophile Mayoma Diankembo was born July 28th 1960 in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Mayoma learned Esperanto in 1983, and began writing and singing in Esperanto from 1985. He never sang in a group, but he sings alone, writes and composes his songs in Esperanto, without playing a musical instrument.
Mayoma enjoys listening to music from different parts of the world: the United States, Jamaica, France, England, and South Africa; that is why he likes to write and sing his songs in the International Language.
At first he sent his songs to people he knew, to Esperanto groups and associations, in order to find singers to interpret them, but without success.
Then he tried recording the songs on cassettes and sending them out as he had done with the texts. Until 1987, when the American composer David Gaines responded, and finally made the arrangements and recorded two songs on a cassette and sent them to Mayoma in 1992.
After 1992, Mayoma lost contact with David Gaines, and started looking again for other singers and producers, but without success.
Finally, in 2006, JoMo (Jean-Marc Leclercq, a well-known singer in Toulouse, France) accepted, and in early 2007 he began recording several of Mayoma’s songs in his home studio, with the aim of releasing them in the Afrika Kompilo project that Vinilkosmo has just launched.

Especially for this compilation, JoMo composed a song in three languages: Afriko ne ’stas vendenda in Esperanto, Africa n’es pas per vénder in Occitanian, and Afrika ezali ya koteka te in Lingala (Africa is not for sale).
