Congo movie score (Spirit of Africa)
Jerry Goldsmith was known for scoring music to awful movies and actually elevating the stupid movie to another level. This is favorite track from the Congo score. It brings back some of the Africa themes that Goldsmith introduced throughout the film.
By the way, the Africa voice you hear in song doing the call and response is Lebo M. He was famous for helping Han Zimmer in writing the Lion King score and Tears of the Sun. Lebo M has an interesting voice that adds to the richness of the song.
Ghost and the Darkness came out around the same time and Goldsmith did the score to that African themed movie as well. It has a similar sound to Congo. However, I like both scores.
Listen to the 2:50 mark to find the similarities.
