Zumbi (1655 – November 20, 1695), also known as Zumbi dos Palmares , was the last of the kings of the Quilombo dos Palmares, a fugitive settlement in the present-day state of Alagoas, Brazil.
"Zumbi" is a song by Brazilian samba-rock artist Jorge Ben. It appears on his 1974 album, A Tábua de Esmeralda. Its title refers to Brazilian slave settlement leader Zumbi dos Palmares. The song's lyrics describe the scene of a slave auction, ending with hopeful speculation about what will happen when Zumbi arrives. The refrain " Angola, Congo, Benguela, Monjolo, Cabinda, Mina, Quiloa, Rebolla" evokes the African origins of the slaves up for sale in the song.
The song has also been recorded by Caetano Veloso on the album Nights of the North.
