Fri 22.1120:00 - 23:00BALZAAL
The DIY techno of Congolese collective KOKOKO! is the most infectious sound of the moment. Using instruments constructed themselves out of found objects from the streets of Kinshasa – jerry cans, oil barrels, saucepans – they make ‘tekno Kintueni’: fast techno with pumping Congolese rhythms. ‘Fongola’ is the band’s debut LP. A clattering mix of metal percussion, freaky rhythms, fast beats and cutting lyrics about the harsh but resourceful reality of living in Kinshasa. After a sweaty and incense-perfumed performance at Couleur Café, they’re coming to transform our Balzaal into a sultry dance pit as part of EASTERN DAZE VI.
"That exclamation point after their name isn’t there for nothing: for the most part ‘Fongola’ thunders on mercilessly. From a bustling metropolis comes this pounding, rattling, bopping cry for help that won’t stop until we drop."
