Staff Benda Bilili + Baloji

Music, Folk, country and blues
Extraordinary Congolese band who live in the grounds of Kinshasa Zoo, bring their strangely affecting blend of lackadaisical Cuban balladry and baggy James Brown-stye Afro-funk to town as part of their nationwide UK tour. With its four core members performing from customised wheelchairs, their youthful and funkified backing band includes ex-street urchin Roger Landu on his own one-string tin-can guitar.
