AllMusic Review by

A pleasing collection, it has (despite the pan-African title) a decent cross-section of modern Zairian rumba. Wenge Musica, Diblo, Lokassa and Pepe Kalle (though his contribution is an instrumental, a major silliness given his extraordinary voice) anchor a line-up that sets up the lesser lights very well. There is some fine stuff here: more than enough to make up for the always tedious Koffi Olomide.
