Staff Benda Bilili - Tres Tres Fort (2011)

Critically acclaimed by the press, Tres Tres Fort is for sure an album not to miss from 2011. Staff Benda Bilili is a group formed by homeless and disabled polio victims living in the grounds of Kinshasa Zoo. Their music combines reggae, rumba, soul and funk with traditional African rhythms as accessibly and joyously as Bob Marley or Buena Vista Social Club. The songs were recorded out in the open, using a dozen microphones, a MacBook and a 100m extension cord fraudulously connected to a deserted refreshment bar nearby. A inspiring movie about Staff Benda Bilili has recently been released.

"Even if the tale so far of Staff Benda Bilili wasn’t such an inspiring one, Très Très Fort still wouldn’t fail to melt the coldest of hearts… incredible." -HMV Choice
