Hot Casa present a reissue of The Soul Kids' Toute L'Afrique Danse Vol. 10. This is a rare gem of a record from the fantastic soul band The Soul Kids, stemming from the Democratic Republic of Congo, which includes covers of James Brown & The Mighty Flames' hit singles "Licking Stick" (1968) and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" (1965), Wilson Pickett's "Hey Jude", and a French vocal version of Otis Redding's soul hit, "Respect". This amazing young band, which released only four 7" singles and one album, is a great example of the influence of soul music and French pop bridging to the new Afro soul scene that the musicians of Kinshasa were involved in during the time of post-independence. Ngoma was one of the first record labels intent on providing local artists' recordings from both sides of the Congo river to the people of the DRC and West Africa. Created in 1948 by a Greek man by the name of Nicolas Jeronimidis, the Ngoma label was active through 1968 and pressing in France until 1971, leaving a tremendous catalog, including this historical and essential soul masterpiece.
