After many years spent in the jungle listening to hot soukous, rumba, afrobeat and syli sound, I finally decided to mix all these influences with some fat drums for the younger generation.
With my brothers Jengo and Demba (R.I.P), we spend several months locked in the forest to build this project, so we hope the result will be decent. It was a real struggle to keep focus on this with all the shit that happened to us last year in the Virunga Park.
As a few may know, our mountain gorillas population is quickly extinguishing due to the war, poaching actions and deforestation, so please help us : gorillacd.org
. Today there are roughly 700 mountain gorillas remaining on Earth, and they are expected to disappear within a few decades if nothing changes.
You can get the LP for free if you want, but if you're in a good mood and feel like giving away some bucks we'll give 100% of it to the above-cited foundations.

"Here's a project as we like them at Le Mellotron. (...) An instrumental album, only based on African music, noises and smells from the jungle, and on that little old-fashioned touch from old gorilla movies. (...) Le Mellotron supports." www.lemellotron.com/2011/08/18/the-incredible-adventures-of-getulio-the-old-gorilla-2011/
