Patrice Lumumba was not just the first democratically elected Prime Minister of Congo but also a talented listener and passionate music lover. On 21 January twenty-five musical veterans of the OK Jazz and African Jazz of the 1960s and 70s will sing about the iconic leader in the fight for independence. With twenty songs from the heyday of the rumba and as many powerful anecdotes they raise Lumumba to his rightful place. The evening concludes with an after party – the perfect opportunity to get down to the beats of Beniko Popolipo!
