Itâ€™s the 2020s and one would be mistaken to think that Congolese youth listen to U.S. chart topping music like most of their East African counterparts. The enduring legacy of Rumba is palpable here.Â Now Rumba is given a contemporary twist. Shout outs are added to new numbers, in honor of the departed, family members, or sponsors and the dancers don the latest fashions.See the lives of several of the artists and learn more about them: their lives in Congo and the many years of musical training that are the foundation of contemporary Rumba success.Buy Tickets
