Description

Kasai Allstars - In The 7th Moon, The Chief Turned Into A Swimming Fish And Ate The Head Of His Enemy By Magic

Using a spectacular mixture of traditional acoustic instruments, electric guitars, distortion-laden thumb pianos and soulful vocals, Kasai Allstars is a collective revolving around 25 musicians all based in Kinshasa, DR Congo, but originating from five different ethnic groups, each with their own language and musical tradition.

Kasaï Allstars' music is powerful and sophisticated, driving and raw. Compared to Konono N°1 (whose minimal and effective sound has been massively adopted by the international electronica, world music and alternative rock scenes), Kasai Allstars use a broader array of instruments & textures, and wilder, more complex, polyrhythms. They often sound like some kind of retro-futurist primeval rock band.

Reviews

Effortlessly funky and mesmerizing... Reveals the depth of a music scene as vibrant and unique as any in the world (Pitchfork, USA)

This is rock sucked back to the continent of its birth to be granted a glorious resurrection (Word, UK)

This remarkable and futuristic-sounding band from the Congo breathtakingly re-imagines Rock n’ Roll from the ground up. The music burns with an energy, joy, beauty, strangeness and ingenuity that shows just how tragically jaded, self-referential and creatively bankrupt western rock music has become.(Fact,UK)
