A new sound from the Congo

Chaotic trance music, perfect for a party.

The throbbing, chaotic trance music of Congolese group Konono No. 1, which I featured a few months ago in Wednesday Morning Download, makes for great party music. Slip it in between some Spoon and some Cee-lo, and watch the people dance. Another track of theirs, Lufuala Ndonga, is up for free download. Make sure to check out the photos here of the group's amazing rig, with likembés (thumb pianos) fixed with handmade pickups and running through a megaphone.
