  • Sale
  • Regular price £16.99

Mbongwana Star is a newly formed band from Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Tired of pre-conceptions around African music, Mbongwana Star ('Mbongwana' means 'change') are creating their own identity, fusing traditional Congolese rhythms with post punk and electronics inspired by life in the townships around them, "making magic out garbage" says producer and band member Doctor L (who produced Tony Allen's 'Black Voices' album). Mbongwana comprises members of the hugely popular Staff Benda Bilili.åÊ
