Product Information : Soul Power (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Presented in conjunction with the landmark 'Rumble in the Jungle' boxing match between Ali and Foreman, Zaire '74 was a three-day music festival in Kinshasa organised by South African musician Hugh Masekela and American record producer Stewart Levine, and featuring performances by such famed musicians as James Brown, Bill Withers, and B.B. King, among others. Many of the American musicians performing at Zaire '74 had been emboldened by the American Civil Rights movement, and saw their journey to Africa as a unique opportunity not just to perform for a new set of enthusiastic fans, but to explore their roots as well. Consequently, SOUL POWER is not simply a concert film featuring some of the most popular African and American musicians of the era, but also a pure intimate glimpse into a time when the musical crossover between the two nations was just beginning to emerge.
