Let’s dance dance dance with Congo’s soukous icons Zaiko Langa Langa….
We’ll spend much of this week immersing ourselves in the Congo‘s gorgeous music. Central African music’s soul comes from its dense natural landscape and from the ancient earth-inspired rhythms of the people who live on that land. Even so, music in the region is far from insular. In fact, the most famous (and most fabulous?) music of Central Africa may be soukous. Originating mainly in the urban centers of Congo, but now present in most every small city and sleepy tribal town, soukous is infinitely danceable. For a taste, enjoy this video of soukous legends Zaiko Langa Langa.
