Links To Peel
Peel discovered Tabu Ley Rochereau through the record label Sterns which regularly sent records imported from Africa to Peel: he generally showed a liking for his style along with other African musical genres. Peel regularly played Rochereau's music in the 80's and 90's, but as with music trends, Soukous music became much faster, with Rochereau's music considered being out of touch. Despite this, many modern Soukous artists consider Tabu Ley Rochereau as the pioneer of Soukous music and so popular was he that when Rochereau died in November 2013, his country, the Democratic Republic of Congo, declared a day of mourning and his funeral took place in the country's parliament.
