The Saint Street Inn is holding their last Congolese Rumba - Jazz Night on June 28th! Grab some farm-to-table cuisine while enjoying the sounds of the popular genre of dance music. Daniel Coolik (electric guitar/mandolin), Glenn Fields (drums/percussion) and Trey Boudreaux (bass) of The Revelers and Bill Smith (percussion/marimba) will be making us swoon for Congolese Rumba!
Congolese rumba originated in the Congo basin during the 1940s. The style gained popularity throughout Africa during the 1960s and 1970s. We have been inspired by such luminary bands as Franco Luambo et le T.P.O.K. Jazz Band (Tout Puissant Orchestre Kinshasa - all powerful Kinshasa Orchestra), Grand Kalle et l’African Jazz, Docteur Nico, and Tabu Ley Rochereau. The music has strong similarites to cuban son and other Latin & Carribbean forms but uses electric guitars and bass to play the melodies. Perfect music for humid Louisiana nights.
