I've been on the prowl for 'new' music for Guy to play on his radio show and also to share with you all for the past few days. I recently discovered 2 acts I'd never heard of before; Orchestre Les Kinios & L'Orchestre Tele-Music de Brazzaville. My guess, judging by the sound, is that these bands are from the early '70s. Their music is great so they must have been overshadowed by the other great bands of their time (which are plenty in number). Enjoy this mix I made which includes a song from Les Kinois and Tele-Music de Brazzaville.
