British Decca record label was established in 1927. It was engaged in Africa (in the British colonies) with enterprises such as Decca West Africa. In France Decca (label: DECCA Disques) released in a series Surboum Africaine and Surboum African Jazz many singles from Congo. It seems that this names go back to Kabasele who craeted his label African Jazz in Brussels while playing for the round tables before independence. Later he renamed the label Surboume African Jazz. On Decca we have both labels; Surboum Africaine continued under the African label.
