- On entre OK; On sort, KO! Franco & the All Powerful OK Jazz | MetaFilter – When he was seven years old, Francois Luambo Makiadi built his own guitar. He would become one of the titans of 20th Century African music, Le Grande Maitre of the All Powerful Orchestre Kinois Jazz.
Franco and his band Tout Puissant OK Jazz were the foremost practitioners (and transformers) of rumba Congolaise, arguably the most popular music in Africa, but Franco is still largely unknown in the US and non-francophone Europe, even among aficionados of "world music." He barely toured the US, never sang in English and rarely adapted his music to international tastes, in part a reflection of his agreement with the government policy of Authenticitie.
