Ambiance Congo / The Other Black Music presents:

The Rumba Kings has come and gone, but the music remains here on WRIR!

Starting with a song we heard a part of in the film, but here we get the whole song. Franco & Tp OK Jazz with the full version of “Locataire”! And more…Prince Youlou Mabiala, Orchestre Le Peuple and the original Mwana Molokai of Papa Wemba. Join in and enjoy the music!
