04 Congotronics: Buzz'N'Rumble from the Urb'N'Jungle
The KONONO N1 album (Congotronics 1) has started giving worldwide exposure to the strange and spectacular electro-traditional mixtures which are being concocted in the suburbs of Kinshasa, Congo. World music, electronica and avant-rock aficionados have been equally amazed by this otherworldly music which has driven the international press to come up with extremely surprising comparisons (from Can and Krautrock to Jimi Hendrix, Lee Perry and proto-techno).

Hot on the footsteps of Congotronics 1, here comes a fresh selection of even more amazing sounds, courtesy of no less than seven electro-traditional bands from Kinshasa, all especially recorded and produced by Crammed Records's Vincent Kenis:

Sobanza Mimanisa
Kasai Allstars
Kisanzi Congo
Masanka Sankayi
Bolia We Ndenge
Konono N1
Tulu (only on the DVD)
