Bouro used to play with Koffi Olomide, but apart from that I don't know much about them. On this album they are backed by Alain's band, Generation A, and a very good job they do too. Mostly rumba, but with the occasional bit of reggae and a 1980s soul vibe thrown in. Here are the first three tracks from the album.
"Mortel Combat" - Alain & Bouro Mpela
"Aicha" - Alain & Bouro Mpela
"Passage Obligé" - Alain & Bouro Mpela
From the same album, here they are all done up in their glad rags. I particularly enjoy the entirely random reference to mozzarella at 3:29.
And as a Sunday bonus, some more musical brothers.
Actually, there are loads of them, aren't there? Watch out for a special brothers themed post here some time soon.
