JUPITER & OKWESS INTERNATIONAL (CD)

Friday 06.07.12 - 02:30 - Cosmopol

For practically a lifetime, Jupiter Bokondji has worked hard to show how the ethnic diversity in DR Congo can result in something other than civil war.

Okwess International is a band of talented young people from the provinces in the war-ravaged country. Together, they play adventurous sunshine pop with the healing zebola dance as a starting point.

With Jupiter – "the rebels' general" – in front, the well-playing band tells the story of a Congo that doesn't rhyme with distress, drought and death. Jupiter & Okwess International provides access to a golden palace of music where funk, party and guitar tones rule.

Label: All Other / import
