You don’t have to be a fan of African tunes to appreciate “On the Rumba River,” Jacques Sarasin’s heartfelt ode to Congolese music and its resilient practitioners… this alternately poignant and playful documentary views his achievements from a context of political oppression and economic deprivation… the director uses his eyes but not his voice, allowing his subjects to guide the story. —The New York Times
