Our hero, Aïlo, is a small reindeer from Lapland. There are tens of thousands of them in the region! Reindeer have antlers that grow back every year. They have evolved to survive in a glacial environment: their coat allows them to tolerate temperatures of -40°C and they can move through snow thanks to their very large hooves, unlike other herbivores. Reindeer eat grass and moss, but their favorite food is certainly lichen!

In the 1950s, when the Democratic Republic of the Congo was under Belgian rule, a generation of Congolese musicians decided to fight against colonial oppression with music. They fused traditional African rhythms with Afro-Cuban sounds, thus creating a new style – Congolese rumba, which soon conquered the entire African continent with its infectious groove, captivating guitar licks, and smooth vocals. The Rumba Kings documentary is a joyful celebration of the liberating power of music.
