Smoke Notes

In the late 1940s the influences of jazz, European and Cuban music met on the banks of the Congo River to form a new style of music rumba. In Leopoldville (Later to become Kinshasa) and Brazzaville, rumba would rule the roost until the late 1950s. In terms of pure dance, no one could beat the Congolese orchestras and their audiences. Backed by a budding record industry, the first of its kind to emerge in the continent outside of South Africa, and a loyal following, a whole new music scene was created.

In the 1970s, 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. recor
