Belgium based composer, poet and multi-instrumentalist Denis Mpunga formed Eko Kuango in the early '80s. A unique fusion of African rhythms, jazz, subtle synth arrangements with an eastern flavour; they managed to introduce a strong sense of poetry - both musically and lyrically. The band garnered a reasonable following from numerous concerts played during their career, but remained little known except by a few music aficionados around the globe. Now with a newfound interest in their work, Libreville Records is proud to offer the remastered four tracks from the original EP, plus some bonus additions from their 'lost' recording sessions with renowned arranger Arnould Massart.
