    Those two artist are from Zaire (Congo). The story behind this album can be found on the Blood And Fire forum in 2005. Quite interesting.

    This wonderful soukous/reggae hybrid--the only one of its kind?--bears the same intriguingly murky stamp as all of Lee "Scratch" Perry's Black Ark-era productions. Seke Molenga and Kalo Kawongolo (who recorded this collection of songs and then dropped off the face of the earth, apparently) could have done this album at a different studio under the supervision of another producer, but thank God they didn't. In addition to giving the music precisely the ambience it needed, Perry co-wrote the brilliantly quirky 'Bad Food' (second best track after the hypnotic, brass-heavy 'Mengieb') with Molenga and Kawongolo. 'Nzube' and 'Masanga' are fine outtakes.
