One of the great global success stories of the past few years, Staff Benda Bilili have become an unstoppable force. A group of street musicians who used to live & play around the grounds of the zoo in Kinshasa, Congo, they make music of astonishing power and beauty. The band’s mesmerising rumba-rooted grooves, overlaid with vibrant vocals and extraordinary tin-can guitar solos, have been dazzling audiences and media the world over, on record, on stage and on the big screen.
Coming back "very strong" with a gala premier in London! Video!
Staff Benda Bilili started their European tour with a screening of "Benda Bilili" & concert at the Union Chapel. A short video of this special event can be seen above.
