Mamou by Franco Luambo (Translated)

This hit song composed by Franco is also known as Tu Vois ? (You see ?). It is a song about two women who accuse each other of infidelity and prostitution.  It was one of the very first songs which prominently featured Madilu System and announced him to the musical world.

  1. Cannot really express my pleasure towards this documentation, ll I can say is its been a great pleasure going through such informative piece of publication. As a RHUMBA music fan, Franco was idol, I miss this great artist and will always miss him. Thank you so much for this production which has given me an insight about his great works. At least I can now realize what he was saying in some of his songs, from the translation provided.
    Unfortunately am not sure where really in South Africa I can purchase his music.

  2. Thank you so much for the publication, which has enlightened me so much about this RHUMBA Guru. Have enjoyed every bit of it. Have been Franco et le tp ok jazz fan for years and his death was a huge disappointment. However their music lives on and consoles me and many others.
