Debout Congolais

Debout Congolais (stand up, for Congo vintage) is the national anthem of the democratic Republic of the Congo. Text and melody come from J. Lutumba and S. Boka. It was introduced 1960, replaced 1972, when the country in Zaïre was renamed, and introduced 1997 with the return to the old name the Congo again.
