Orchestre Bella-Bella

en.wikipedia.org writes: Nyboma is one of the most celebrated Soukous musicians in the world. Nyboma Mwan'dido was born in Zaire (now known as the Democratic Republic of Congo). Nyboma started singing with Orchestre Negro Succes. In 1969 he joined the band Baby National, then Bella Bella. L'Orchestre Bella Bella was founded in 1969 by the Soki brothers, Maxim and Emile Soki. Its lineup included guitarists Johnny Roger and Jean Bosco. Emile, who was only 16 when Bella Bella started, became a teen idol of the youth of Kinshasa. Around 1972 the band experienced drastic changes in its lineup and internal quarrels, that eventually led to one the Soki brothers, Emile, leaving the band for a while to create a spin-off group called Bella Mambo. In the same period, Pepe Kalle joined Bella Bella for a few years, in order to earn the money he needed to buy instruments for his own band Empire Bakuba. With Kalle as a replacement for Emile, Bella Bella managed to keep their leading position in the soukous scene, with hits like Mbuta, Kamale, Kimbundi, Lipua Lipua and Sola.
