Classic: ‘Monami’ – N’Gola Ritmos

N'Gola Ritmos - MonamiLourdes Van-Dunem is seen as one of the greatest female voices in Angola. During the first years of her career she was part of the famous Angolan group N’Gola Ritmos. Recordings of the 1947-formed group are very rare and video material is even harder to find. In 1964, the Portuguese TV station aired some live performances of the famous Angolan group, including ‘Monami‘, one of the group’s lamentos which were inspired by the daily chronicles or funeral laments. Lourdes Van-Dunem’s voice is truly breathtaking!
