In the late 1980s, a band that brought together a lot of great Tanzanian and Congo musicians was formed. It was called Intimate Rhumba. This group did not withstand the test of time and neither was it able to record. Some of the artists from the band believe that the group was disbanded as a result of bewitchment. They believe that they were seen as a big threat to a group that was close to them called Ndekule.
