Born into one Africa’s richest musical cultures – home to some 450 different ethnic groups - the music of Congolese artist Jupiter Bokondji, together with his high-octane band Okwess, reaches beyond its popular conga and soukous sounds, mixing myriad lesser-known styles and rhythms with funk, soul and rock, while urgently addressing his homeland’s post-colonial travails. “Remoulds the template for forward-thinking, contemporary African music.” (Rhythm Passport)
Les Triaboliques are magpie-minded British string-pickers Lu Edmonds, Ben Mandelson and Justin Adams, whose collective CV includes The Damned, 3 Mustaphas 3, The Mekons, Jah Wobble and PiL, Their uniquely seasoned sound interweaves strands of Middle Eastern, African, east European, Celtic and Americana music.
