Pan-African Hour: Democratic Republic of Congo (June 23, 2010)

Here's some tunes from the Democratic Republic of Congo, mostly Congolese Rumba. Quite a few tracks are from an album called Golden Afrique Vol. 2, and we also play a song from the third volume of the Congotronics series, which features the Kasai All-Stars, a band of people from the DRC with different tribal and thus musical backgrounds, all collaborating together to make an interesting style. A bit of mbira (AKA: thumb-harp) here and there, and even some yodeling courtesy of Wendo Kolosoy.
