JUPITER & OKWESS INTERNATIONAL (CD)

DR Congo’s very own Jupiter shines as brightly as his namesake planet.

This experienced funk master, social critic and philanthropist’s regular band since 1990 is called Okwess International. They are a handpicked bunch of local talents whose lively guitar tones supplement Jupiter’s voice perfectly.

In 2014 the “rebel general” and his crew enter our Arena stage at midnight offering their golden, gorgeous funk. James Brown, The Meters, Fela Kuti and DR Congo’s traditional zebola spirit possession dance rhythms are along for the ride when these Congolese rhythm masters add heat, melody and message to the late night party.
