Extraordinary Congo-based headliners, 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. With its four core members performing seated in customised tricycles, their youthful funkified backing band includes ex-street urchin Roger Landu on his own one-string tin can guitar.
