Press Release :

In the 1970’s, Congolese musicians, bandleaders and singers began to break free from the influence of Cuban music. The Congolese sound became pure Rumba Rock, and its powerful rhythm and ringing guitars influenced many other orchestras on the African continent. This was an era of epic competition between the pioneering orchestras of African Jazz or OK Jazz.

This Rumba Rock compilation showcases a time where from both sides of the Congo River, tough musicianship, fierce competition, great singers, and talented bandleaders paved the way for a golden era of Congolese music.
