Fally Ipupa. Mabele

Fally , is one of the new crop of  ‘Rumba Congolaise’ artistes along with Ferre Gola who are attempting to snatch the mantle from the established artistes like Koffi Olomide, JB Mpiana, and Werrason. The thing about Congolese music is that it functions like a school. Take Fally for instance, Fally was a member of Koffi’s Quartier Latin, Koffi before him was a member of Papa Wemba’s Viva la Musica. Papa Wemba himself was a member of Zaiko Langa Langa so there is definitely some kind of artistic education system.

Fally Ipupa

As for Fally, he definitely has a HipHop swagger but manages to remain rooted in Congolese rumba. the track Mabele is a modern throwback.
