Synopsis

A doc­u­men­tary trac­ing the his­tory of this pop­u­lar African dance music. From Kin­shasa to Braz­zav­ille, along the banks of the River Congo, Rumba has been the music for the peo­ple of Congo and Zaïre since the 1950’s, often cel­e­brat­ing the events of mod­ern Africa, such as the famous “Inde­pen­dence Cha-Cha” sung by Joseph Kabaselle in 1960. Through the use of archives and mod­ern footage, Rumba presents us with a look at the last forty years of pop­u­lar African music.
