When I have to introduce Makossa to someone who does not know anything about this music, I often choose for a song of Jean Claude Mbimbe. His musical output is limited and he certainly doesn't belong to the most famous and popular Makossa artists, but to me his songs and arrangements have everything that good, classic makossa needs.
The man released 3 albums in the mid-eighties and it took ten years until he made another record in 1995. As far as I know that was his last album up till now, but last summer he announced that he will soon release a new album. I'm looking forward to it.
