STAFF BENDA BILILI (CD)

Saturday 07.07.12 - 20:15 - Cosmopol

They excited on our Cosmopol stage with a great funk party in 2010 when all skeptical misgivings were groundless.

Staff Benda Bilili is a group of Congolese polio survivors in wheelchairs who, despite poverty and disease, have developed a stripped-down but smiling mix of rumba, soul and congotronics. A contagious musical acquaintance filled with insisting rhythms and compelling call-response vocals.

Staff Benda Bilili steadily moves upwards on the global music scene. The sympathetic and always impeccably dressed band conquers Roskilde Festival again. 

Label: Crammed Discs / import

Life-affirming rumba from the depths of the Kinshasa slums.
Band schedule is ready in May

Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.

We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
