One thought on “Vicky et L’Orchestre OK Jazz – Song of the Day

  • Excellent music connecting Cuba and Congo in an unstoppable 360 degree back-and-forth movement. The name of the lead musician, however, is not Vicky but rather “Verkys” (born Georges Kiamuangana), which according to Wikepedia is itself a corruption of the name Curtis. More information at
