L'Orchestre Afrisa International
The musical legacy of the late, great Congolese Rumba singer Tabu Ley Rochereau is respectfully carried on by a stellar line-up of his musicians.
L'Orchestre Afrisa International have preserved the memories of their leader by performing his repertoire impeccably.
Originally formed in 1970 out of the ashes of African Fiesta National the group loyally backed both Tabu Ley and his female protege Mbilia Bel - the Grand Dame of Congolese music-through their finest moments.
Under the direction of saxophonist, Modero Mekanisi a lineup of 12-15 musicians will perform some of the most memorable songs from the Rumba era. Many of those songs have been re-recorded on the group's excellent 2017 CD release Melanie released on Colomotion Records.
