Les deux premières années de Viva la Musica sont celles de la collaboration de Papa Wemba avec Koffi Olomidé , alors étudiant. Celui-ci écrit les paroles de certaines chansons de l'orchestre, et s'initie au chant et à la scène aux côtés de son aîné. Mais, sa démarche n'est pas politiquement comparable à celle de Fela au Nigeria , car il n'a jamais milité contre le régime autoritaire de Mobutu. Il s'agit d'une collaboration temporaire souhaitée par les deux artistes. Au début des années quatre-vingt, sa popularité atteint des sommets au Zaïre et au Congo-Brazzaville. Il devient alors une véritable icône pour la jeunesse sur les deux rives du fleuve Congo.

Plus d'options Langue disponible : anglais With his dynamic vocals and flamboyant personality, Papa Wemba born Jules Shungu Wembadio Pene Kikumba played an essential role in the evolution of Central African music. Respectfully known as "the King of Rhumba," Wemba successfully fused African traditions with Western pop and rock influences.

A co-founder of Zaiko Langa Langa in , he went on to international attention as the leader of Isife Lokole in and Viva la Musica after Born in the Kinshasa region of what was then the Belgian Congo and now the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Wemba was taught that he was descended from a long line of BaTetela warrior chieftains.

His mother, a professional mourner who sang at funeral wakes, had a profound influence on his singing. He recalled in a late-'90s interview, "If mother was still alive, I would be rich in words and rich in melodies. She was my first teacher and my first audience.

The experience sharpened his abilities to sing in minor keys. Helping to form Zaiko Langa Langa in , Wemba remained with the group for four years. Both groups used the lokole, a hollow tree trunk played with two sticks, as a rhythmic foundation. Moving to the village of Molokai in the center of Kinshasa's Matonge district in , Wemba formed his most successful group, Viva la Musica. Their music continued to reflect an authenticity campaign launched by President Mobutu.

Wemba appeared frequently on state-sponsored television, talking about the influence of traditional music and the importance of the authenticity campaign. From the beginning, Viva la Musica's reputation was built as much on their passion for designer clothes as their music. Fans inspired by the band's style of dress began dressing similarly and were known as "La Sape," taken from the expression, "La Société des Ambienceus et Ces Personnes d'Élégance.

Their first year climaxed with the Kinshasa newspaper Elima naming the band best orchestra, Wemba best singer, and their single, "Mère Supérieure," best song. Relocating to Paris in the early '80s, Wemba formed a second version of Viva la Musica. While this group took a more Westernized approach, the original band continued to perform indigenous-based music.

Wemba explained, "My original group is there for me Zairian fans who come to hear typical African sounds but when I decided to be a singer with an international name, I formed another group to appeal to a different public. Wemba continued to fuse the musical traditions of his homeland and Western pop. He continued to record and perform regularly, although a brief prison stay in the early s he was arrested for his suspected involvement in a ring smuggling immigrants into Europe affected both his outlook and the theme of his recordings, including Somo Trop from Wemba died in at the age of 66, after being stricken while on-stage in Ivory Coast.
