Kinshasa 'melting-pot musical et culturel ultrapopulaire'

'Troposphere 13' is his latest EP, and both Damon Albarn (keyboard) and Warren Ellis (violin) played along on it, with Jupiter Bokondji & Okwess International.

The Independent On Sunday: 'New contender for best Congolese band on the planet... Their turbo-charged funk rock is a cross between 'Ball of Confusion'-era Temptations and the rawest Congolese soukous, with some searing blues guitar riffs thrown in for good measure. Sure to end up a favourite of the year, and no mistake.'

Recently 5 pages in Les Inrocks : 'font bouillir un melting-pot musical et culturel ultrapopulaire... musicien iconique qui, fidèle à son étoile, n' a jamais dévié de sa trajectoire.'
