Tabu Ley Rochereau is one of the creators of soukous music, the popular dance style from Zaire that has made him one of the biggest musical attractions in Africa and in the French-speaking world. It is a great honor, then, to present Tabu Ley's first U.S. album -- recorded in Louisiana with Rounder producer Scott Billington. With roots in the rhythms of Cuban rhumba and traditional African songs, Tabu Ley's compositions meld up-to-the-minute grooves with breathtaking harmony vocals (band members Djeffard Lukombo Mayemba, Wawali Bonane Bungu and Munoko Dodo Gisalu are all accomplished soukous singers and stars themselves) and the soaring lead guitar of Huit-Kilos. The shifting polyrhythms and textures make for exciting listening and dancing.
