Democratic Republic of the Congo

-style. The Equator Sound Band was the most popular band of the period. In Nairobi in the late 1960s, bands like the Hodi Boys and Air Fiesta were popular, primarily playing cover versions of Congolese (Democratic Republic of the Congo), British (United Kingdom) and American (United States) hits. Other musicians were innovating the benga (benga music) style, with Shirati Jazz the most popular of the early bands. The two biggest genres of pop music played by Kenyan bands are called the Swahili sound or the Congolese sound. Both are based on soukous (rumba) from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Swahili music can be distinguished by a much slower rhythm, though the styles have had a tendency to merge in recent decades. The genres are not distinguished by language, though Swahili pop is usually in Swahili (Swahili language) or the related Taiti language. Both are sometimes in Lingala or one of the native languages of Kenya. Rumba African Rumba, or 'Soukos' is mostly associated with the Democratic Republic of the Congo but its popularity has inspired Zimbabwe's own brand of rumba in musicians such as Simon Chimbetu and Leonard Karikoga Zhakata. Soukos has been an influence on other artists such as The R.U.N.N. family (R.U.N.N. family). Nowadays, Zimbabwean rumba is more popular than imported rumba. Describing the '''music of the Democratic Republic of the Congo''' is difficult, due to vagaries surrounding the meanings of various terms. The country itself was formerly called ''Zaire'' and is now sometimes referred to as ''Congo-Kinshasa'' to distinguish it from the Republic of the Congo (or ''Congo-Brazzaville''). In this article, ''Congo'' will refer specifically to the ''Democratic Republic of the Congo'' unless otherwise noted. Outside of Africa, most any music from the Congo is called ''soukous'', which most accurately refers instead to a dance popular in the late 1960s. The term ''rumba'' or ''rock-rumba'' is also used generically to refer to Congolese music, though both words have their own difficulties and neither is very precise nor accurately descriptive. People from the Congo have no term for their own music per se, although they have used ''muziki na biso'' (''our music'')until the late 1970s and now the most common name is "ndule" which simply means music in the lingala dialect. Most songs from the Democratic Republic of the Congo are sung in the "lingala" dialect, mainly because it is the dialect which is the most spoken in the country. - East- (East Africa) and Central Africa Burundi, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Senegal, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda - That autumn he toured with his show for a month through Germany and three months through Congo (Democratic Republic of the Congo). But in 1957 he again went to New York where he was asked to make a guest-appearance on the famous Ed Sullivan (TV) Show. He recorded albums at RCA Records with the producer (Record producer) Steve Sholes. Sholes offered him a contract to promote his record by visiting radio stations in the US for three months, under the name “Bobby John”. This tour was intended to promote his recent releases, and in the meantime he was to regularly produce new songs. But Schoepen, who had already been on tour almost constantly for ten years and had contractual obligations in Europe, was increasingly looking for a place to settle down (which would become Bobbejaanland). He decided to no longer pursue his success in the US. '''Debout Congolais''' (Arise Congolese) is the national anthem of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
