Now, one year after I found out about Alec Lomami and over a year and a half after his original release of the song Kinshasa, his EP Mélancolie Joyeuse is finally out and available for a free download!
Mélancolie Joyeuse obviously features Kinshasa and Pop Revolution but it includes two new songs: CLV(C’est la Vie) and Pardon My French, which uses Miriam Makeba’s song Pata Pata throughout. Honestly, Pardon My French is my favorite of his new releases. It’s currently blasting on my speakers as I write this. Each of the four songs featured on this EP are each drastically different from each other, which further proves Alec Lomami’s talent and versatility as both an artist and producer. I look forward to listening to his two new songs over and over and discovering their meaning throughout the coming days. What I’m even more excited about is introducing my Cameroonian community to Alec’s music in September! Just spreadin’ the love.
I leave you with an excerpt from a fantastic Afripop Magazine article released yesterday on Alec’s EP:
