Born Nicolas Kasanda in 1939 in Congo, this is Docteur Nico,
'Le Dieu de la Guitare' ( God of the guitar )they used to call him.
This LP was originally released in 1967 as 'African Fiesta, Sous
la direction de Docteur Nico' on Ngoma ( bottom photo ) and re-issued
by Sonafric in 1975 ( top photo ).
Remarkable about this album is, both sides end with a track on
which he immitates Van Morrison and 'Them'. Strange combination
which didn't bring the succes he had hoped for.
