Soul Power is a vérité documentary - compiled entirely from footage shot in 1974 - of the astonishing back-to-Africa 3-day music festival "Zaire 74". It was held in Kinshasa ahead of the biggest boxing event of all time: the Muhammad Ali-George Foreman "Rumble in the Jungle". Directed by Jeffrey Levy-Hinte, editor of Leon Gast s Oscar®-winning (Best Documentary) When We Were Kings, and sourced from the same archival pool, Soul Power features a legendary line-up of African and African-diaspora musicians - all of whom are at the very peak of their creative powers. Alongside Ali’s wit and wisdom - profoundly lyrical in its own right - vibrant street scenes of downtown Kinshasa, and "fly-on-the-wall" footage of the festiva’s staging, rehearsals, and jams, the three nights of concerts (lensed by Albert Maysles and a host of other legendary cameramen) offer electrifying performances by James Brown, B.B. King, Bill Withers, Sister Sledge, Miriam Makeba, The Spinners, Big Black, The Crusaders, Celia Cruz, and many more.
