(Vinyl-only, numbered in strictly limited edition of 380 copies) After the double LP compilations Planet Ilunga presents the first record in the new '45 rpm series' on the label. On the A-side we find the traditional song 'Luvumbu Ndoki', modernized and arranged by Franco (O.K. Jazz) in 1966. With its implicit Kikongo lyrics implying a criticism of the regime, it was Franco at his best. On the flip side we hear the previously unreleased song 'Ludiata Nangwi' which has its roots in the Situationist International movement. This song was recorded, arranged and mixed in Kinshasa in 2015, more specifically at Un.Deux.Trois - Franco's nightclub which is now run by his son Yves Luambo Emongo. The musical direction of the song was provided by producer Vincent Kenis, known for his work in the Congotronics series (Konono n°1 and Kasai Allstars) and as the compiler of three CDs on the early music of O.K. Jazz. 'Ludiata Nangwi' had a prominent role in the audiovisual work 'One.Two.Three', part of the exhibition 'Personne et les autres' that was created by Vincent Meessen for the Belgian Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale.
