TOTO BONO LOKUA Self Titled Limited Vinyl LP

Ahead of the release of their second album in 2018, the first album of Toto Bona Lokua is finally released on vinyl for the first time. At the origin of this project, in 2004 the common desire for putting this together, a simple meeting, for the space of a session, just "to see" what we can do together; what we have to say to each other, to exchange, to share ; what we can reveal to each other that we didn't imagine we possessed. In short, stripping ourselves bare. Being true, here and now, with no greasepaint - being equitable. Heart to heart. A cappella. Thus, three voices that are equal, three singular careers, three quite distinct universes with one thing in common, like a nutritive sun, more or less distant : Africa. Sensitive, carnal, coloured, alive and lived by Richard and Lokua - the former from the Cameroon, born on a plateau named Adamaoua, between the savannah and the virgin forest, the latter from the Congo - both linked by the might of the Congo river sweeping along the myths and reality of a timeless Earth - and the experience of exile, the discovery of ultra-contemporary cosmopolitanism tinted with the nostalgia that belongs to diasporas. Inherited, confiscated for Gérald, a Caribbean born in Paris, carried away in turn on the great drive of his deported ancestors, in the vanguard, despite himself, of this new, crossbred world that is to come, already here, there and elsewhere... No culture shocks between these three then, but rather a soft, insidiouss contagion, leaving only the delicious trace of an ineffable sensuality..
