Kasai Allstars feat.Basokin
The point of departure for this supergroup is ofcourse ethnic African music, especially a cult genre that is ascribed to both Konono N°1 and Kasai Allstars, namely “congotronics”. Kasai Allstars is a band- institution that eludes simple classifications. It consists of musicians belonging to five ensembles from Kasai in the Democratic Republic of Congo. One of these ensembles is Basokin. Live during phenomenal concerts we hear a blend of primal rhythm generated using traditional instruments, expressive dance, spectacular costumes and intriguing references to such modern genres as jazz, hip hop, trance, rock. Most recently, Kasai Allstars have starred in the film “Felicite” that was awarded a Silver Bear in Berlin this year.
