Recently, Damon Albarn traveled to the Democratic Republic of Congo with a group of musicians that took the name DRC Music and included producers like Richard Russell, Dan The Automator, Actress, and Jneiro Jarel. Together, they spent five days recording tracks with local musicians. The resulting album, a benefit for Oxfam called Kinshasa One Two, is out soon, and the group recently posted some tracks from the album online. We’ve got them below.
“Hallo” (Feat. Tout Puissant Mukalo & Nelly Liyemge):
“Ah Congo” (Feat. Jupiter Bokondji & Bokatola System):
“Lingala” (Feat. Bokatola System & Evala Litongo):
