From the Mountains of Congo


Sing to the Lord a new song,
And His praise from the ends of the earth,
You who go down to the sea, and all that is in it,
You coastlands and you inhabitants of them!
Let the wilderness and its cities lift up their voice,
The villages that Kedar inhabits.
Let the inhabitants of Sela sing,
Let them shout from the top of the mountains.
Let them give glory to the Lord,
And declare His praise in the coastlands.

Isaiah 42:10-12 [NKJV]

OK -I know.
Mbilia Bel is not REALLY singing those words from Isaiah
but that’s how I imagine it, since I don’t happen to understand Lingala.

I love the way the music and lyrics sound like they are emanating from another dimension.
I just found this site which has translations of Congolese music.
Et pour les Francophones, cliquez ici

I hope you like this song as much as I do.

After writing this I actually DID find some music praising Almighty God with Congo guitars. Hallelujah!
