TEST BROADCAST CONTINUES WITH LIVE STREAM OF MUSIC!
The most popular beat and Music from Africa,Soukous is a genre of dance music that originated from Cuban Rumba music in the Belgian Congo and French Congo during the 1940s and gained popularity throughout Africa.
Soukous is known as Congo in West Africa and Lingala in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania after the Lingala language of the lyrics. In Zambia and Zimbabwe, where Congolese music is also influential, it is still usually referred to as Rumba. It mixes the kwasa kwasa with the fast tempo zouk style and Congolese rumba. It is also an individual dance.
"Soukous", a derivative of the French word "secousse" – "to shake" – was originally the name of a dance and music popular in the Congos in the late 1960s, an African version of the Cuban Rumba. From the 1940s, Afro-Cuban son groups such as Septeto Habanero and Trio Matamoros had been played over Radio Congo Belge in Léopoldville (Kinshasa), and the Congo shared the widespread popularity of Cuban music during the late 1940s and 1950s.
In the 1950s and 1960s, some artists who had performed in the bands of Franco Luambo and Grand Kalle formed their own groups. Tabu Ley Rochereau and Dr. Nico Kasanda formed African Fiesta and transformed their music further by fusing Congolese folk music with soul music, as well as Caribbean and Latin beats and instrumentation. They were joined by Papa Wemba and Sam Mangwana, and classics like Afrika Mokili Mobimba made them one of Africa's most prominent bands. Congolese "rumba" eventually evolved into soukous. Tabu Ley Rochereau and Dr Nico Kasanda are considered the pioneers of modern soukous. Other greats of this period include Koffi Olomide, Tshala Muana and Wenge Musica.

Headlines across the world blast that former Illinois Congressman Mel Reynolds has been arrested in Zimbabwe on ography charges, and those in Illinois who remember the sordid story surrounding Mel Reynolds' resignation from Congress respond with, "Oh, no! Not again!" But journalist and political insider Nate Clay gives an untold story behind the headlines, one that has more to do with an intense battle over proposed sanctions against the country of Zimbabwe. Who are the real players behind the scenes and who are the political enemies Mel Reynolds may have made that could have led to his being targeted for retaliation? Is he really guilty of criminal acts or are unseen hands working to use his past weaknesses to destroy his credibility abroad? Whether local, national or international politics, the bottom line is always about money. Who is it that's trying to get paid?
A conversation with the B.A.I.O. A coversation about "South Side religious leader Prince Asiel Ben Israel pleads guilty in Mugabe scheme"
April 11, 2014 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A longtime Chicago political activist admits in court Friday that he worked for the Zimbabwe government, but never registered, as required by law, with the United States Attorney General, but as he entered a guilty plea, his co-defendant and lifelong friend vowed he will not accept a plea bargain and plans to go to trial.
Prince Asiel Ben Israel faced federal allegations that Zimbabwe would pay him and his co-defendant, C. Gregory Turner, $3.4 million to ultimately set up political meetings to have sanctions lifted against the African country.
Friday, Ben Israel admitted he never notified the U.S. Government that he was working for Zimbabwe."Rather than take the people who believe in me and family of mine through a long trial, I agree to accept that responsibility of not registering," he said.
"You might describe it as a technical violation of the law," said attorney Ray Pijon. "Certainly it's a violation of the law. There is no question about that."
In Friday's plea agreement, prosecutors alleged that throughout 2009, the defendants tried to have U.S. and Illinois politicians travel to meet officials of Zimbabwe both in that country and South Africa. The goal was to lift U.S. trade sanctions prompted by Dictator Robert Mugabe's regime. Ben Israel today defended his work in Africa.
"I didn't know that the work I've been doing for the last 40 years, I needed to register," he said.
His co-defendant, C. Gregory Turner, is taking a different legal approach and plans to go to trial.
"We are going to fight this to the bitter end from a technical and factual point of view," Turner said.
