Worldwide Premiere // Mbongwana Star // Shégué

April 23, 2015

Mbongwana Star (‘Mbongwana’ meaning ‘change’) are a newly formed band from Kinshasa, Congo. Tired of the pre-conceptions around African music, they’re creating their own identity, fusing traditional Congolese rhythms with post punk and electronics. Full of energy and utterly original, here’s a brand new track from their forthcoming album.

From Kinshasa LP is out on 18th May via World Circuit and available to pre-order. Catch Mbongwana Star on a European tour throughout April and May.
