An historic concert was held in Brussels, Belgium on Friday night that celebrated 50 years of Congolese independence and 50 years of Congolese music.
For those of us who could not attend, I'll be playing a number of the original versions of the songs presented, songs chosen and performed by artists still with us to represent the rich history of Congolese music.
The concert was over four hours long and I'll have only half that time for the program today. I hope to give you a taste of the inspiration the music these artists had to give their audience a night to remember. The songs will be all be songs available on CD in hopes that you will be able to get them yourselves.
Heres: a link to pre-concert photos of the artists and a review:
