Kasai Allstars feat.Basokin
The starting point for this supergroup is ethnic African music, especially an iconic 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. During their spectacular live concerts we experience 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.
