Motown, Soul & Oldies

“Motown” is both a style of music and a label; in fact, no other label (with the possible exception of its grittier ’60s brother, Stax) is more identified with the sound it produced. Although Motown started as a straight R&B label and later moved into genres from Psychedelic Soul to New Jack Swing, “The Motown Sound” as it’s usually understood by fans and historians.Most Motown songs were written on piano and based on a piano riff, although there were occasional ballads that broke the mold (the Temptations’ “My Girl”).

Libanga

Music industry, as we know it all over the world is falling apart. But Congo is an exception . Congolese musicians has invented “libanga”. They’re not relying on all the complex laws and technology, digital rights management . Use of “libanga” or shout out to rich and powerful people in their songs. For example Eternellement – This simple, poetic love song, “Eternellement,” crooned by megastars Fally Ipupa and Koffi Olomide, is really an open appeal for sponsorship that’s specifically addressed to a man named Laurent Lorenzo.
If the number becomes a hit, Lorenzo — and other elite members of Congolese society — will feel compelled to reciprocate with gifts of money, cars and even houses. So, in one of the poorest countries in the world, the use of “libanga” helps popular musicians to stay afloat.
Following musical podcast features Congolese Rumba pieces, made in “libanga” style.

Fally Ipupa – Eternellement
Koffi Olomide – 13ieme Apotre

Vox pop on Cinema

At Cinema Paradiso, we have a number of people coming to watch the movies where they spend their evenings delightfully. In this conversation with few of the participants, we get to know more about their liking to the cinema and in the end, we ask with a pinch of humor whether it would be good to bring snacks to the cinema, surprisingly most of us would want this place to be clean and kept just as the way it is for the cinema lovers.
