Jeannot Bel - Kuetumbari

Jeannot Bel – Kuetumbari

Jeannot Bel

Kuetumbari (2012)

The great Congolese guitar tradition continues with Jeannot Bel from Kinshasa. His album titled Kuetumbari is an infectious collection of dazzling guitar-driven rumba and soukous. Jeannot Bel’s detailed guitar solos and innovative patterns enrich the lively dance beats from Congo.

Jeannot Bel (stage name) grew up in Kinshasa and started to play the guitar inspired by Dr Niko, Luambo Makiadi, Pepe Felix and Tshimpaka Roxy. He played his first gigs at age 14, performing with bands fronted by Lassa Carlito (OK Jazz), Debaba (Viva la musica).

As he developed his guitar skills, Jeannot Bel also studied music technology at University of West London. He began touring with Kanda Bongo Man and eventually moved from Kinshasa to London.

In the UK, Jeannot Bel recorded with Debaba and many African musicians such as Lazare (Alpha Blondy pianist) and Massamba (Africa International).

He is currently a widely respected guitarist and is teaching African music lovers how to play soukous and Congolese rumba guitar.

Kuetumbari highlights the fascinating sounds of the Congolese guitar style performed by one of the current maestros, Jeannot Bel.

2010 Bordeaux: High Prices, High Praise Posted by Keith Akers | Posted in Wine Reviews | Posted on 02-27-2013

Late last month, I attended the 2010 Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux tasting at the famous Drake Hotel in Chicago.

This tasting is held in Chicago every January and it’s always a great opportunity to preview the new vintage. While the First Growths and a few other major classified houses don’t participate, there are usually over 100 wines to sample. This tasting was especially exciting, as there’s a lot of hype surrounding the 2010 vintage.

In the latest Wine Spectator, the cover proclaims that 2010 is “Bordeaux at its best.” Robert Parker has already declared that more than a dozen wines might receive 100 points. (Parker scores will be released on February 28.) Many other critics have written with similar enthusiasm.

Some critics have been more cautious with their praise — Chris Kissack wrote that “anyone who claims 2010 is another Vintage of the Century is… far wide of the mark.” — but virtually everyone agrees that the wines are extremely good. (more…)

The Rise and Fall of Wine Juggernaut, Algeria

By: Beppi Crosariol

Here’s a dinner-party brainteaser: Name the world’s largest wine exporter in the 1950s. France? Italy? Argentina? Australia? How about none of the above? You’d be on the wrong continent with any of those responses. It was Algeria.

For much of the past century, the North African country was a juggernaut, shipping more wine outside its borders than France, Italy and Spain combined. (more…)
