Mbilia Bel is the queen of the rumba congolese, who emerged in the early eighties as a chorus member of Tabu Ley Rochereau's band and went on to have a successful solo career before moving to Paris in the late eighties to work with Rigo Star and others. The album was released in 1987 and features songs such as the African Rumba, composed by Tabu Ley, with its slow beat and shimmering synthesizers, and the Soukous, composed by Mbilia himself, with its six beats of drums and percussion, flowing electric guitar and bright horn hooks. and bright horn hooks. Mbilia's bright vocals and the digitised sound production are a perfect match.
