Papa Wemba Emotion Limited Vinyl LP

Papa Wemba was the undisputed King of Congolese Rumba Rock. With a career spanning almost half a century the flamboyant and outspoken musician took his soukous rhythms from the streets of Kinshasa to the world. The release of "Emotion" was a real turning point for Papa Wemba and one of his most important albums. As an artist he was quiet and enigmatic but ready to embrace change, challenging the foundations of his music and seeking new territories and new audiences. These irresistibly crystal-clear melodies are wrapped in the crispest, most modern production from Stephen Hague. Peter Gabriel describes Papa Wemba as, "such an extraordinary talent - music flowed out of him effortlessly and he could thrill people with one of the most beautiful and emotional voices I have ever heard." "The brightest, most accessible album of his formidable career. Wemba's pure, melodic vocals positively shine." The Observer
