Here's proof that the African woman's role is in the soul kitchen, cooking up wicked dishes like the ones on this set.

Zairean soukous has rarely transcended the nine-minute title track of this 1984 album recorded during the apex of the era in M'bilia Bel's career when she shared the Orchestre Afrisa International with her husband, Congolese star Tabu Ley Rochereau (from whose backing chorus she had emerged). Bameli Soy demonstrates why Bel went on to become the first female African superstar: train-track drums, a singing horn section, and Tabu Ley's molten-gold guitar lines wrap themselves comfortably around Be

While other albums, most notably Amour Fou/Crazy Love and Zing Zong, offer equally strong material, Kwassa Kwassa is unmatched in energetic power. There were no still bodies when Kanda Bongo Man led the rave and this album shows why. It was the

This 1991 recording of a polished but unslick city band on the order of Marrabenta combines local rhythms with touches of soukous in the horns, a notably eastern African sound in the guitars and an indefinably Portuguese/Brazilian undertow. The really extremely individual and attractive result is enriched by the solo sax playing of Jose ''Seca'' Alage, who was murdered by street thugs in 1993. by John Storm Roberts All Music

When Kanda Bongo Man, the Paris-based Zairean superstar, performed in New York's Central Park last summer, the show was taped and then broadcast by National Public Radio's syndicated show, ''AfroPop Worldwide.'' The Central African singer with his trademark flat-brimmed hat is at his best before an enthusiastic crowd, so the radio show has now been released as an album, Soukous in Central Park. It's about the best introduction to Central African soukous and its fluid guitar arpeggios, tumbling p
