Staff Benda Bilili

Just got a CD in the post from a band called Staff Benda Bilili. Top stuff. Saw them at the Barbican a few weeks ago and they brought the house down. Dancing in the aisles and everything. Here’s a video of them playing back at home. Their story is an interesting one. Polio victims from Congo who live in the zoo, look after the street children and make wonderful music.
