Ali and Foreman’s 1974 fight in Kinshasa, Zaire – the “Rumble in the Jungle” – is legendary, but no less momentous was the music festival alongside it. A forceful & exuberant declaration of empowerment, it brought together some of the best African-American & native African soul musicians – James Brown, B.B. King, Bill Withers, Miriam Makeba, Celia Cruz, The Crusaders, Sister Sledge, nd many others – for three days of electrifying, at times explosive performances. A reminder of an era and movement that shaped history and a celebration of the sheer power of music.
