Orchestre Kamale was formed in 1975 by singer Nyboma with members of Orchestre Lipua Lipua, where he was a singer from 1973 to 1975 and where he had his first hit Kamale. "Orchestre Kamale didn't last very long and split up in 1978 when Assosa and Mulembu left to create Fuka Fuka. Nyboma continued for a while with Les Kamale but he (like Dally Kimoko) was soon asked by Dizzy Mandjeku in 1979 to join his African All Stars in Togo, as conditions became more and more difficult for musicians in Zaire. Two years later, in 1981, Nyboma recorded one of his biggest hits « Double Double » with a band that once again was named Les Kamale. ... Nyboma recorded another three albums under the name of Les Kamales in 1983-84." [1]
