TAMBOUR D'AFRIQUE TONIGHT - MADILU SYSTEM SPECIAL
Three years ago, August 11, 2007, the great vocalist Madilu System passed away, we dedicate tonight's episode of Tambour d'Afrique to him as we are very close to the anniversary of his death. Tonight we celebrate the music he gave us during his life.
Congolese music/rumba is very much about story telling and Madilu was a great story teller. His voice invoked emotion and you felt every word he sang as if it happened to him directly. His POV as a vocalist is definitely missed. RIP MADILU SYSTEM
Tune into Radio Triomphe tonight @ 10pm (NY time) to here this very special episode.
