Mbongwana Star, a newly formed 7-piece band from the Democratic Republic of Congo, with Coco Ngambali and Theo Nzonza from Staff Benda Bilili, they gathered up the necessary parts of a band from the younger generation and Doctor L, a maverick musician and producer on the Parisian hip-hop and electro scenes who was looking to find the punk ethic alive in Kinshasa’s raucous swelter-skelter.And the result? A fusion of traditional Congolese rhythms with a big fistful of European post-punk bass and busted electronics.
