Hailing from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mbongwana Star features a new generation of Kinshasa musicians embodying the concept of change (mbongwana). Led by Coco Ngambali and Theo Nzonza, two founders of Congolese supergroup Staff Benda Bilili, along with Parisian producer Liam Farrell, the band fuses traditional Congolese rhythms with European post-punk bass and busted electronics from recycled and reconstructed instruments, amplified and distorted in glorious and unexpected ways.
