Uele Kalabubu et sa Tribu

Uele Kalabubu (and his tribe) were supposedly from the Republic of the Congo. I am unable to find any information on them (or is it he?) or Afroground. Not sure if they were some European studio creation like Kongas… But I have seen other singles and albums by them, but none of them have a picture of any musicians.

Sometimes while researching these records, I end up with more questions than answers. If you have any information, please contact me.

Catalog number SG 119 on AZ records of France.


Your suggestion that this group might be a studio creation might be correct , I’ve seen that claimed elsewhere on the net too. My suspicion arises from the name Uele Kalabubu, sounds artificial , add to that ” & his tribe” and it becomes even less credible. I also find it peculiar that a Congo-Brazzaville group would sing in Swahili. Just my observation though.
Thank you for all the gems.

Hello ! Indeed, Uele Kalabubu is a name invented by the Belgian producer Roland Kluger. The Tracks names are in fact quite fantastic, they are Brussels puns , in the manner of dialects Babaoro’m of ”Tintin in The Congo”!
