Wenge Musica was formed in 1981 as a young outfit of modern soukous music. As with so many Congolese bands, various members left to create an off-shoot. Around 1990, Wenge Musica split between two factions, Wenge Musica BCBG and Wenge Musica El Paris, the Paris-wing, with singers Marie Paul Kambulu, Alain Mwanga and Aimé Buanga. The latter left El Paris, returned to Kinshasa and created Wenge Kumbela.

Since its creation, five CDs were recorded.

Formed: by Aimé Buanga as an off-shoot of Wenge Musica El Paris, around 1993
Style: soukous.
