CBS imprint that appears to have specialised in releasing records by Kenya-based Congolese musicians. All of these singles are in Lingala, except for LNG 001 by Orch Super Bwambe, which the label claims is in English and Swahili and LINGA 13 which is in Lingala and Swahili.


It is possible that Orch Popo-Lipo is the better-known Orch Pepelepe, who recorded primarily for ASL


Many thanks to Fabian Altahone of the very fine Africolombia blog for alerting me to the existence of LINGA 8 in May 2012. This also claims to be in Lingala, though the song title is Kiswahili and means, literally, “sleepy milk” or yoghurt.
