Two tracks of konpa music

Imagine this!

I just found 2 tracks of Konpa music which I have recorded around 1997: “Aladeriv”–an adaptation of the version released in “Serenade by Gifrants” and “Lanmou Blayi Sou Tchè Mwe” at the time I was leading my band “Vèvè.”

So many memories:
This version of “Aladeriv” was recorded by Ronald Félix in his studio. He also played bass in this song,I had Bonga on congas, Makarios Césaire on lead guitar (a marvelous solo) and Donald Guillaume, the former drummer of the Fugees on drums. Of course, I sang, played the guitar, keys and did the arrangement.

“Lanmou Blayi Sou Tchè We” was recorded by Alberto Netto and he also played drums. I had a Brazilian bassist called Jorge on bass, Ken Cook on keys, Patrick Mottaz on guitar, Eddy Brisseaux on trumpet, Bob Pilkington on trombone. I cannot remember the name of the tenor sax player.
