Third Eye Dialated

Hello World – STAFF BENDA BILILI

Alright well I came across this group last week and I was very impressed. What I was expecting from this Congolese group was something very different than the sound they deliver. I really enjoy this group’s music and their recent album, Tres Tres Fort. Its a very different sound to what I’m used to hearing from foreign artists but the mystique around this group was enough for me to check them out. The group is made up of young and old men who live around the Kinshasa zoo in Congo. There’s something very sincere and visceral about their music but I don’t think that’s what separates them from other groups in the region. I think its the sound of their music, a free-form that transcends genre and is just an expression of the members of the group. Enjoy this track called “Na Lingui Yo” and let me know what you think.
