Katanga

 

Katanga was a secessionist province of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The music of the anthem was written by the national minister for education. Seceding a few days after Congolese independence, the country did not secure much international recognition and was eventually reintegrated back into the Congo after UN intervention.

Special thanks to: Dieter Baalss for some of this information and Pavel Zinovatny for the music file.
