2005 release. Nyboma Mwan'dido was one of the most popular singers in Zaire (now known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo) when, in 1981, he and his guitarist, Dally Kimoko, moved to Lomé, Togo, for a long-term engagement with the African All-Stars. There, under the name Nyboma & Kamalé Dynamique, they recorded Doublé Doublé, an album that blended Congolese soukous, West African highlife, Caribbean zouk, and American disco into a new dance sensation. A hit all over Africa, it was subsequently released in Europe and North America. Over the next four years Nyboma made four more albums with this band, which included guitarist Syran Mbenza, bassist Bopol Mansiamina, and drummer Ringo Moya. The ten Kamalé Dynamique tracks collected in this Sterns CD are now classics, the best representation of an exciting era when Congolese music became pan-African and went on to win fans around the world.
