Africa Worldwide: 35th Anniversary Album From Zaire, Tabu Ley Rochereau is the creator of the highly-danceable soukous style.

Tabu Ley has assembled many of Zaire"s brightest musical lights for the latest edition of his band, including singers Djeffard Lukombo Mayemba, Wawali Bonane Bungu, and Munoko Dodo Gisalu, and the remarkable lead guitarist Huit-Kilos.
