Rumba on the River: A History of the Popular Music of the Two Congos

by Gary Stewart
£31.99   paperback  Verso (2000)

Rumba on the River: A History of the Popular Music of the Two Congos by Gary Stewart Note: this book is now 'print on demand', meaning that the publisher no longer keeps physical copies in stock and instead prints a copy specially when the book is ordered. This may add a slight delay to your order.

A snapshot of an era when the currents of tradition and modernisation colllided to produce a unique music along the banks of the Congo River. It is the story of twin capitals engulfed in political struggle, and the vibrant new music that flowered amidst the ferment. The most comprehensive account written in English of the rich history of music from the Belgian Congo, Zaire, DR Congo, French Congo or simply Congo.
