Title The genesis of urban music in Zaire
 
Creator Wa Mukuna, Kazadi
 
Subject

 
Description In Zaire, the installation of radio stations and recording industries gave rise to an urban musical expression which fed on traditional music for its content, and relied heavily on foreign musical instruments as a medium of interpretation. The organization of the newly created musical expression was governed by norms of aesthetics peculiar to the new urban centers.
