Grand Kalle & le African Jazz - Souvenirs from the Congo

Joseph Kabasele Tshamala (1930 Matadi, Belgian Congo (now DRC) – 11 February 1983 Paris, France), popularly known as Le Grand Kalle, was a Congolese singer and bandleader, considered the father of modern Congolese music. He began his career by founding the seminal African Rumba band Grand Kalle & l’African Jazz, the most popular early band on the scene, whose personnel at various times included guitarist Dr Nico Kasanda, saxophonist Manu Dibango and singers Tabu Ley Rochereau, Sam Mangwana and Pepe Kalle.
