Joseph 'Le Grand Kallé' Kabasele lies at the very centre of the great mosaic that is African popular music, and in times that surrounded Congo's independence in 1960, Kallé and his band, which included musicians like Dr Nico, Manu Dibango and Tabu Ley Rochereau, was the most influencial in all of Africa.
This compilation brings together for the first time the breadth of Kallé's recording career spanning over 3 decades. Includes tracks taken from shellac and vinyl that have been unavailable for many years. Together with Kabasele’s most famous works, this double album features a 104-page book in both English and French revealing the man, his music and its context as never before.
