Konono N°1

The hypnotic sound of the Congolese band Konono No° 1 with electrically amplified thumb piano (likembe) and wild rhythms is legendary. Now they are presenting their new album in Berlin for the first time.

„They have as much connection with Einstürzende Neubauten as with Tabu Ley ... the frenzy and locomotion of prime '70s Miles or a Krautrock jam" Village Voice
