Nguashi N’Timbo was band leader of Festival du Zaire and the composer of Shauri Yako, which gave Orch Super Mazembe a massive hit when they covered it and is one of the great songs of Africa. In addition, he was also a producer for Festival du Zaire and other bands such as Top Forum and Sentima. These singles are part of recordings that he licensed to Melodica.


Thanks to Peter Toll for filling in many of the blank spaces in the listing for this label and explaining Ntimbo’s role as producer.
