Welcome to my new blog Congo Kin Lyrics. My aim here is simple; to create an archive of lyrics and translations to Congolese songs so that more people can enjoy the incredible meanings they have to offer. Story telling is an intrinsic part of Congolese music. Although the instrumentation in Congolese music has always been top notch, allowing people from all over the world to enjoy it, one thing I find is nothing beats knowing what your favorite song means and admiring the poetic nature of your favorite singers and song writers.
Congolese Rumba is sung mainly in Lingala. Some artists also mix in other local languages such as Kikongo and Tshiluba. Using these languages, full of poetry and wonder, Congolese artists create stories of love lost and gained, life and just plain old fun. I want to bring all of this to life for whoever is interested and happens to stumble upon this site.
I implore all Lingala speakers who come across this site to make corrections and add on lyrics. I want to make this the biggest and best archive for Congolese Lyrics on the internet. Together as fans of Congolese Rumba, Soukous, Ndombolo, etc we can make that happen!!
Peace and Blessings, Ms. Bazu
