Description
This mesmerizing documentary on the legendary three-night concert staged in Kinshasa, Zaire, in 1974 has been dubbed "the greatest music festival that you have never seen."

"Extravagantly entertaining! Performers captured with remarkable sonic brilliance and visual immediacy."NY Times

"It's hard not to be riveted by the central idea of 'the beat returning to the roots'.... It's fascinating to absorb the sense of celebration of African-American R&B artists as they perform in Africa. Also noteworthy are songs by African musicians playing on Kinshasa street corners and the sights and sounds of the Zairian landscape."USA Today

"The stuff of pop culture folklore.... James Brown is wonderful, but familiar. Much badder is [Celia] Cruz and her sprawling, sexily raucous band; Bill Withers, with his sparse and aching acoustic performance of 'She's Gone' and Miriam Makeba's 'Click Song,' introduced with a vigorous assertion of cultural pride ('It's not a noise, but my native tongue')."Village Voice
