Just listening to: Mario

Another song that has burned itself into my brain, including my motoric centers. Gently swinging.

… this wonderful instrumental part starting around minute 6 … …Memories of the dance floor…

This is Soukous music of the finest kind, a classic. Hard to belief it is 30 yers ago that this song came out. How long ago is it already that Franco died!

For a translation of the text sung in Lingala, see http://lingalainstitute.org/2014/07/24/mario-english-lyrics-live-version-by-luambo-makiadi-franco-and-madilu-system/

Oh, Mario!
