Bouger Le Monde
Everyone must know their story by now: formed by paraplegic street musicians who, at the time, slept on the streets of Kinshasa and rehearsed in the half-abandoned city zoo, Staff Benda Bilili conquered worldwide audiences and media thanks to their enchanting music, their relentless energy and their uplifting optimism. Upon the 2009 release of their first album, 'Très Très Fort', the band instantaneously became one of the most emblematic African bands around, as well as a symbol of resilience and triumph over adversity.
For the last 3 years the band have toured nonstop, appearing at festivals and concert halls across the world. 'Très Très Fort' gained numerous awards and "Benda Bilili!", the feature film dedicated to the story of the group, achieved international acclaim.
'Bouger Le Monde', recorded once again in Kinshasa, DRC, contains a collection of 11 superb new songs with lyrics in no less than four different Congolese languages, as well as French, with lead vocal duties being shared between no less than seven singers. It wonderfully translates the band's new sound: it's more powerful and sophisticated, yet retains and showcases all the idiosyncratic qualities of their makeshift instruments, and is as lyrical and moving as ever.
