PANCOCOJAMS EDITOR'S NOTE
"Bayuda Du Congo" is the name of a music group from DRC (Kinshasa). From reading various comments in several discussion threads of that group's videos on YouTube I've gathered that the group is from the Kasai region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (Kinshasha), that Tshiluba is the language that is sung in their videos, and that Kadiyoyo is their lead singer/founder. I'm not sure what the word "Bayuda" means.

Please add to this information. Thanks!

I was motivated to search for YouTube videos from the DRC in part because of this article that I read about that nation: From http://ewn.co.za/2017/09/11/over-500-dead-as-congo-cholera-epidemic-spreads-who
"KINSHASA - More than 500 people have died so far in a cholera epidemic that is sweeping the Democratic Republic of Congo, the World Health Organization (WHO) said.

Outbreaks of the water-borne disease occur regularly in Congo, mainly due to poor sanitation and a lack of access to clean drinking water.

But this year’s epidemic, which has already hit at least 10 urban areas including the capital Kinshasa, is particularly worrying as it comes as about 1.4 million people have been displaced by violence in the central Kasai region.

The WHO said at least 528 people had died and the epidemic had spread to 20 of Congo’s 26 provinces."...
-snip-
Prior to reading that article I wasn't aware of the violence or the cholera epidemic. My prayers for all those in this nation. I pray for peace and unity and help for those facing illness, death, and danger.

DISCLAIMER: As English is the only language that I understand, I don't know what this song is about except for what I read in the discussion section.

This pancocojams post isn't meant to take any side in any DRC conflict, but is meant to showcase some of the music, dancing, and fashions of this part of the DRC.

"Big Up" is a vernacular phrase of Caribbean origin (Jamaica?) that basically means "Congratulations".
"fais la fiertE des Baluba = "you make the pride of Baluba" [French to English}

"Charles Kashama :attention Charles,personne pour revendiquer cela . C'est la culture tous se ressourcent dedans même elle, même lui.Dieu merci que les comprennent que en dehors de l'agriculture et du diamant, ils ont une formidable richesse de plus alors qu'ailleurs la culture est entrain d'être décimée et envahie par d'autres culture. Plongez également dans les chansons de louanges en tshiluba dans les églises ce que traduit se ressourcer dans les langues bantous.Formidables les Kasaiens. Bravo à vous."

"Charles Kashama: attention Charles, no one to claim that. It is culture all resourcing in it even, even him. Thank God that understand that apart from agriculture and diamond, they have a tremendous wealth more while elsewhere culture is being decimated and invaded by other cultures. Immerse yourself in the songs of praise in tshiluba in the churches which translates to recharge in the Bantu languages.Formidables the Kasaiens. Congratulations to you."

-snip-
This is the English translation of the comment that was written in French. I apparently retain the French comment and can't easily find it in that discussion thread.

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kora_Awards
"The KORA All Africa Music Awards are music awards given annually for musical achievement in sub-Saharan Africa. The awards were founded in 1994 by Benin born businessman, Ernest Adjovi, after a discussion in Namibia with the country's President Hage Geingob.[1] The award is named after the kora, a West African plucked chordophone."

Gali Christ, 2016
"Proud to be a muluba , Come one guys put it up !!!!!!"
-snip-
"Put it up" may mean "Keep it up" ("Keep doing what you are doing well"). The saying "Keep it up" is found in a lot of YouTube discussion threads of contemporary African music and dance videos.

"+Mtb .Xprss Oui c'est ca notre Congo: l'unite dans la diversite. C'est ce qui fait notre force et notre richesse. Je suis Tetela (Otetela). Je viens d'une famille de 11 enfants, 4 filles et 7 garcons et pas un seul (ou une seule) marie (e) a un Otetela! Tous mes freres et soeurs sont maries a des femmes et des hommes d'autres tribus: Mbuza, Muyanzi, Luba (Shaba), Luba (Kasai), Muyombe, .... Ca vous donne une idee de l'harmonie dans laquelle ont toujours vecu les diverses tribus de notre beau pays. C'est ca notre Congo. J'etais ne au Kasai, j'ai etudie au Kasai et au Kivu, et je suis alle a l'universite au Katanga. Et partout j'etais chez moi. Ceci est vrai de tous les Congolais. Nous sommes un peuple pacifique et nous avons toujours vecu en paix avec les 9 pays qui sont nos voisins (Nous ne connaissons pas la culture de la machette). RIEN NI PERSONNE NE POURRA NOUS DIVISER."

"+ Mtb .Xprss Yes it is our Congo: the unity in diversity. That is what makes our strength and wealth. I am Tetela (Otetela). I come from a family of 11 children, 4 girls and 7 boys and not one (or only) married has an Otetela! All of my brothers and sisters are married to women and men from other tribes: Mbuza, Muyanzi, Luba (Shaba), Luba (Kasai), Muyombe, ... It gives you an idea of the harmony always lived the various tribes of our beautiful country. This is our Congo. I was born in Kasai, studied in Kasai and Kivu, and went to the university in Katanga. And everywhere I was at home. This is true of all Congolese. We are a peaceful people and we have always lived in peace with the 9 countries that are our neighbors (We do not know the culture of the machete). NOTHING NOR PERSON CAN DIVIDE US."

"Margot Jaeger muluba:singulier
baluba : pluriel
la linguistique luba stipule le mu+un substantif=le substantif au singulier alors que le ba+substantif indiqué le pluriel.
ex. muluba, baluba
muntu,bantu
mungala,bangala
etc.
ceci n'est pas une règle générale car il existe disons des lignes diverses des singuliers et pluriels des noms telle que:
di-ma,di-me ,mu-mi,tshi-bi,mu-ba. . . très amusant la grammaire des nos langues vernaculaires .bonjour ma belle soeur,je suis aussi muluba du kasai(le i prend toujours deux points) ."

"Les Brazzavilois ont un probleme avec cela oubliant qu'il y a la tribue/ethnie Kongo au Congo Kinshasa et pourtant la danse Champeta c'est du Zaiko tout fait. Tandis que la musique Kasaienne est une musique a part, avec un style distinct qui n'a rien a voir avec la "Rumba"mais qui est une dance des hanches et du nombril."

"The Brazzavillians have a problem with this forgetting that there is the tribe / ethno Kongo in Congo Kinshasa and yet the Champeta dance is Zaiko all done. While Kasaian music is a music apart, with a distinct style that has nothing to do with the "Rumba" but is a dance of the hips and navel."
