Pondjo Pondjo – Jupiter Okwess

Here’s Pondjo Pondjo – something wonderful to listen to from Jupiter Bokondji and Okwess International, incorporating Warren Ellis (the Bad Seed, not the author) on violin. Jupiter Okwess are a group of Congolese musicians representing the epic, energetic Kinshasa sound in a fabulously esoteric and space-crazy way. Their new album, Troposphere 13 is unbelievably funky and will certainly make you move in incredible science-fictional ways, but I thought I’d share the slightly more poignant Pondjo Pondjo with you.

Jupiter Okwess are on Bandcamp [where you can buy their album on PHOSPHORESCENT VINYL]
