distinct people

Republic and northern Congo (Republic of the Congo) (Brazzaville region (Brazzaville)), in 11 different ecological zones of the Western Congo Basin (Congo River). They are a related, but distinct, people from the Baka (Baka (Cameroon and Gabon)) people of Cameroon, Gabon, northern Congo, and southwestern Central African Republic. Pepetela first went to Paris and then, in 1963, earned a scholarship to study Sociology in Algiers, where he was approached by Henrique Abranches from the MPLA to help create a Center for Angolan Studies. This Center became the focus of the young Pepetela's work for the next decade. Until 1969, Pepetela, Abranches, and other MPLA members worked together to document Angolan culture and society and publicize the MPLA's struggle. In 1969, the Center moved from Algiers to Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo. After the move to Brazzaville, Pepetela became more active in the MPLA's armed resistance against the Portuguese in the Cabinda region of Angola and on the Eastern Front. Laban, ''Angola'' pp. 789-790 This time in the late 1960s and early 1970s served as the inspiration for one of Pepetela's most recognized works, the war narrative, ''Mayombe''. During this time, Pepetela also wrote his first novel, ''Muana Puó''. The novel was written during his time in Algiers and deals with Angolan culture, using the metaphor of traditional masks of the Chokwe people to expose different dichotomies present in Angolan culture. His novel displays the knowledge of indigenous Angolan cultures that Pepetela gained during his time on the Eastern Front of the war for independence. Muana Puó was never intended to be published, a detail Pepetela made clear in an interview with Michel Laban. The author had written the novel as an exercise for himself and several of his close friends to read; nevertheless, the novel was published in 1978, during Pepetela's tenure in the Angolan government. Laban, ''Angola'' p. 774 Sanou won a bronze medal at the 2002 African Championships (2002 African Championships in Athletics) in Radès, and a silver medal two years later (2004 African Championships in Athletics) in Brazzaville. Participating in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, he achieved fourth place in his 100 metres heat, thus failing to make it through to the second round. He finished seventh at the 2006 African Championships (2006 African Championships in Athletics) and fourth at the 2008 African Championships (2008 African Championships in Athletics). Sanou represented Burkina Faso at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. He competed at the 100 metres sprint and placed 6th in his heat without advancing to the second round. He ran the distance in a time of 10.63 seconds. * Bloemfontein Image:50%.png * Brazzaville Image:50%.png * Bujumbura Image:25%.svg * WikiPedia:Brazzaville commons:Brazzaville


political stance

Patrice Lumumba. In 1959, an internal split was precipitated by Albert Kalonji and other MNC leaders who favoured a more moderate political stance (the splinter group was deemed Mouvement National Congolais-Kalonji. Despite the organisational divergence of the party, Lumumba's leftist faction (now the Mouvement National Congolais-Lumumba) and the MNC collectively had established themselves as by far the most important and influential party in the Belgian Congo.

critical analysis

Soukous Though soukous has become much more closely associated with the popular music of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, early in the style's evolution both the local scenes of Kinshasa and Brazzaville played a very important role. In these cities, American style orchestras (called ''soukous'', or ''kirikiri'' or ''kasongo'') played rumba (Cuban Rumba) (a kind of Cuban music (music of Cuba)) influenced by traditional music and jazz. Soukous arose from this fusion of styles, popularized as dance music by a number of different orchestras in the 1950s and 60s Republic of the Congo Congo Brazzaville center>

important development

in 1960 under the leadership of Luis Ranque Franque. Resulting from the merger of various émigré (emigrant) associations in Brazzaville, the MLEC rapidly became the most prominent of the separatist movements. A further group was the Alliama (Alliance of the Mayombe), representing the Mayombe, a small minority of the population. In an important development, these movements united in August 1963 to form a common, united front. They called themselves the FLEC, and the leadership role

Brazzaville

'''Brazzaville''' is the capital (capital (political)) and largest city of the Republic of the Congo and is located on the Congo River. As of the 2007 census, it has a population of 1,373,382 in the city proper, and about 2 million in total when including the suburbs located in the Pool Region. The populous city of Kinshasa (more than 10 million inhabitants in 2009), capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, lies just across the Congo River from Brazzaville. Together with Kinshasa, the combined conurbation of Kinshasa-Brazzaville has thus nearly 12 million inhabitants (although significant political and infrastructure challenges prevent the two cities from functioning with any meaningful connection). Over a third of the population of the Republic of Congo lives in the capital, and it is home to 40% of non-agricultural employment. It is also a financial and administrative capital.
