Staff Benda Bilili

  • Music
Critics' choice

Busking on the ramshackle avenues of Kinshasa, Congo, the African band Staff Benda Bilili is just a group of street musicians 'armed only with talent and optimism.' Made up of middle-aged men – several of whom are paraplegic, all of whom live below the poverty level – and one underage guitar prodigy, Benda plays songs that speak of finding happiness despite your hardship.
