Brilliant song from Congo DR. It appears on From Kinshasa – out this May on World Circuit. I am very impressed by what I hear here, it will likely end up a contender for the album of the year.
Description by World Circuit:
“Tired of pre-conceptions around African music, Mbongwana Star (‘Mbongwana’ means ‘change’) are creating their own identity, fusing traditional Congolese rhythms with post punk and electronics inspired by life in the townships around them, “making magic out garbage” says producer and band member Doctor L (who produced Tony Allen’s ‘Black Voices’ album). The result is revolutionary. This isn’t an African band per se. It’s a trans-global barrier-busting sound machine.”
