Who hasn’t snatched up Dolly Parton’s “Jolene”? The Congo Cowboys cover this American Country hit, too. They highjacked it to Africa, the original home of the banjo, so typical of the Country genre. Cheeky and free, the Congo Cowboys combine the strange sounds of American roots music with the rich rhythms of traditional African music.
