Zaire '74, which took place at the time of the 'Rumble in the Jungle', gathered the top US Rhythm 'n' Blues acts (including James Brown and Bill Withers) alongside African acts like Miriam Makeba and Afrisa. Returning to footage unedited for over 30 years, Soul Power presents their masterful performances alongside slices of Kinshasa life, returning us to the heady days when the musical crossover between Africa and America was just emerging.
