"These bands all draw on traditional trance music, to which they've incorporated heavily-distorted sounds generated by DIY amplification of their instruments... just like Konono N°1, except that, as musicians come from various geographical and cultural background, they use very diverse rhythms, timbres and instruments: the trademark electrified thumb pianos and megaphones are joined by an array of buzzing drums, swirling guitars and hypnotic balafons. The Congotronics 2 album includes a 41-minute DVD based on material filmed by Vincent Kenis while he recorded these bands in Kinshasa, and edited by Elsa Dahmani." (label info)
