Franco ( Luambo Makiadi )

Likambo Ya Ngana by Franco on Grooveshark

the sorcerer of the guitar, as he was known to millions, is a major figure in 20th c. congolese music; though he only toured the usa once near the end of his life. when he died (1938-1989) in a belgian clinic, his body was returned to his native zaire where the government declared four days of national mouring, and state radio played only franco's songs.
