“Mariama”, a programme with African music. Congo.

Nowadays Congo is only in the news with bad press, at least it seems to be that way. It also seems to be a bad time for music, although the Congotronics series still holds many fine things. In short, time for a more positive sound from more optimistic times, when the rumba and soukous concurred half the world. Prepare your hips…
