AllMusic Review by

Pamelo got his start singing with Les Bantous de la Capitale, an all-star spin-off of The Orch Rock A Mambo, along with guitarist Master Mwana Congo, who is also here. For a long time it was easier to hear about Mounk'a than to hear him, his records existed in that hazy netherworld of out-of-print-amazing-records-that-will-change-the-world so many African records fall into. Definitely worth the wait, this is very tasty soukous without any studio tricks or drum machines and only a minimal horn section to fatten up the sound.
