Shot in the "Bon marché" (Barumbu) neighbourhood, at the heart of Kinshasa, featuring the late Wendo Kolosoy’s backing band, "Indépendance cha-cha - Le jour d'après" is a new take on the African independence anthem written in 1960 by Joseph "grand kallé" Kabasele and Nicolas " dr. nico" Kassanda.

Thanks for the info, Matt, and for posting this (and to the man like Rob for tipping me off about the post). This is by far and away the best thing I've heard this month and a great little film to accompany it. Fabulous tribute to a fabulous song.
