Pamelo Mounka


b. Bemba Pamelo Mounk’a, 30 Oct 1945, Ouesso, Congo-Brazzaville. Vocalist Mounka is among the most widely used Congo-Brazzaville recording performers, performing in a method which to Traditional western ears is normally indistinguishable from that from the nation’s bigger neighbour, Zaire. Actually, Mounka’s initial break in the music business emerged via Zairean music group head Rochereau, who documented him in 1963. An associate from the Bantous for a few years, Mounka proceeded to go solo within the middle-60s, launching an unbroken string of over 70 strike singles between after that and 1980, when he was taken up to Paris with the Eddyson label to record, a project that led to the major-selling record L’Argent Appelle L’Argent. In 1983 he was reunited with Rochereau over the record 20 Ans De Carriere, celebrating his twenty years within the record business. In 1985 he documented the outstanding En Plein Maturite, which continues to be his finest function to date.
