"Soul Power” is a 2008 documentary about the Zaire ‘74 music festival in Kinshasa that accompanied the Rumble in the Jungle heavyweight boxing championship bout between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman in October 1974. Performers include James Brown, The Spinners, Bill Withers, Miriam Makeba, B.B. King, Fania All-Stars featuring Celia Cruz, and others. And, of course, there is the late, great Muhammad Ali.
