STAFF BENDA BILILI (CD)

Saturday 07.07.12 - 20:15 - Cosmopol

They excited on our Cosmopol stage with a great funk party in 2010 when all skeptical misgivings were groundless.

Staff Benda Bilili is a group of Congolese polio survivors in wheelchairs who, despite poverty and disease, have developed a stripped-down but smiling mix of rumba, soul and congotronics. A contagious musical acquaintance filled with insisting rhythms and compelling call-response vocals.

Staff Benda Bilili steadily moves upwards on the global music scene. The sympathetic and always impeccably dressed band conquers Roskilde Festival again. 

Label: Crammed Discs / import
