Libanga

Music industry, as we know it all over the world is falling apart. But Congo is an exception . Congolese musicians has invented “libanga”. They’re not relying on all the complex laws and technology, digital rights management . Use of “libanga” or shout out to rich and powerful people in their songs. For example Eternellement – This simple, poetic love song, “Eternellement,” crooned by megastars Fally Ipupa and Koffi Olomide, is really an open appeal for sponsorship that’s specifically addressed to a man named Laurent Lorenzo.
If the number becomes a hit, Lorenzo — and other elite members of Congolese society — will feel compelled to reciprocate with gifts of money, cars and even houses. So, in one of the poorest countries in the world, the use of “libanga” helps popular musicians to stay afloat.
Following musical podcast features Congolese Rumba pieces, made in “libanga” style.
