This Congolese 'Neo-Rumba' Jam Will Soundtrack Your Weekend

You're about to have Sir Loma's "BB" on heavy repeat.

Here's "BB," the debut release from Congolese singer and songwriter Sir Loma.

"BB" is a highly-infectious track from the UK-based Loma, who takes influences from Congolese artists like Papa Wemba, Pepe Kalle, Ferre Gola, Fally Ipupa, and Carlyto Lassa.

He calls his style "Neo-Rumba," an addictive blend of Congolese Rumba with more modern styles like pop, hip-hop, and afrobeat.

Loma is currently planning to release his debut EP next year. Until then, get down to the dance-heavy "BB" below.

You can follow him on Facebook and Instagram to stay up on all your Neo-Rumba needs.
