|1960'S EPEE D'OR & L'ORCH. UVOCOT JAZZ|
Richard Epee Mbende a.k.a. Epee D'Or, was one of the leading pioneers in the development of Makossa music during the 50's and 60's. Founding father of such legendary bands as l'Orchestre UVOCOT Jazz (UVOCOT means "The Union of Coastal Voices") and Los Calvinos.
I realise that Epee D'Or deserves a more comprehensive biography, but unfortunately I could not find any other information about him.
