Odemba OK Jazz All-Stars – UK

Odemba OK Jazz All-Stars - UK

To commemorate the 20th annive

This is an excellent opportunity to run a piece on Franco, one of the true greats of African music, whose influence is still felt worldwide today; and have access to interview living legend Dizzy Mandjeku – who currently leads and conducts Odemba OK Jazz All-Stars and was an original member of Franco’s OK Jazz.

This magnificent 12 piece band is the original exponent of smooth big band ‘Franco style’ Congolese Rumba. Other greats in the All-star line up include Malage De Lugendo, Nana and Baniel, Dele Pedro, and veteran Seigneur Lokombe all of whom are legends in their own right.
