Date Time Event Description
Oct-03-18 08:00 PM Jupiter & Okwess Discovered in 2006 thanks to Jupiter’s Dance, a documentary about the new music scene in Kinshasa, Jupiter Bokondji's sound is a combination of Afropop, traditional Congolese rhythms, funk, and rock music with lyrics that often carry political or social messages. Born in Kinshasa, he began drumming as a boy, helping his grandmother, a traditional healer, at ceremonies and funerals. In 1974, his diplomat father was posted to East Berlin, where Jupiter discovered rock music and became inspired by the apparent complicity between Congolese traditions and Western music.He returned to Kinshasa, convinced that music could be a unifying force and determined to create his own mode of musical expression. Gathered around Jupiter are the Okwess faithful: Montana (of Staff Benda Bilili) on drums and Yendé on bass, guitarists Eric and Richard and the singer Blaise. Their new album, Kin Sonic (produced by Marc-Antoine Moreau, whose credits include Amadou & Mariam and Songhoy Blues), unveils a largely hidden heritage even as it addresses issues confronting societies all across the globe.
