Great concert of Konono No1, organised by our friends of Planet Rock and we are honoured to have one of our Rebel Up! dj’s doing the warming up & afterparty.
The members of Konono n°1 come from an area which sits right across the border between Congo and Angola. Founded over 40 years ago in Kinshasa, their repertoire draws largely on Bazombo trance music, to which they’ve had to incorporate the originally-unwanted distortions of their sound system: an impressive array of home made (and home modified) instruments. Their music is as unique as their tools – the mighty noises and distortions produced by their unique setup has taken their take on traditional Bazombo trance music to outer space.
DJ of the night will be DJ SebCat (Rebel Up! Soundclash) from Brussels with a special Congolese selection!
