There is a longstanding historical and cultural relationship between Congo and Cuba via the slave trade and the ‘return’ of Cuban music to Africa. Do historic connections enable contemporary musicians from both worlds to recognise similarities in each other’s music?

Keywords: clave, seben, Cuban son, Congolese rumba
