In the Heart of Africa, from the forests and urban jungles of Kinshasa and across the river in Brazzaville – ancient music of forest people blended with South American rhythms, big band jazz, Afro-American soul and funk. With its All Powerful Orchestras and Society of Atmosphere-setters and Elegant People – the music of Congo is outstanding considering a history of colonialism, conflict, and coups. On this week's installment: soukous, guitar sorcery, hip hop, and more from Congo.
