The Rumba Kings is a joyous exploration of the liberating power of music.
A celebration of a musical identity forged through the fight for freedom in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In the 1950s, when the country was a Belgian colony, a generation of Congolese musicians fused traditional African rhythms with Afro-Cuban music to create the electrifying beat of Congolese Rumba.
Situated inside the stunning neo-gothic church of St. Mary Magdalene’s in Paddington, Grand Junction is launching its ‘Summer Sessions’ concerts from 24 June.
Featuring a diverse array of music over 2 months, which includes a trio of African flavoured artists.
