Congo, weGo Hard, weGo Hard!

BALOJI feat. KONONO n1 - KARIBU YA BINTOU from BALOJI on Vimeo.

Baloji is just the phunkiest, most stylish emcee on the Continent - his vintage throwbacks are just on anutha level.

Baloji's been in the game for quite a few years now and musically he just keeps getting beta and beta, visually, he's untouchable.
The top vid is shot on the streets of Kinshasa at the site where Mohammed Ali fought George Foreman.
Karibu Ya Bintou (“Welcome to Life in Limbo”) is a short film with music from the 2010 album ‘Kinshasa Succursale’ by Baloji. Electric finger piano (likembé): played by Konono N°1, the legendary Congolese band who collaborated with Björk & count Vampire Weekend and Beck amongst their biggest fans. (fisttapAfricaIsACountry)


This second vid is shot in the "Bon marché" (Barumbu) neighbourhood, at the heart of Kinshasa, featuring the late Wendo Kolosoy’s backing band, "Indépendance cha-cha - Le jour d'après" is a new take on the African independence anthem written in 1960 by Joseph "grand kallé" Kabasele and Nicolas " dr. nico" Kassanda.
"The wide range of backgrounds, the various ethnic groups and traditions: this has and will never stand in the way of sharing a common set of ambitions." 
Baloji

Checkout his MySpace page, it's so retro yet so 2010, so phresh yet so classic. laaav it.

In DOPE Music We Trust!

Great video. There is more here than just music. Strange mixes here - the sedate and the exuberant, the sad and the joyful. Baloji seems to be dressed in the manner of Lumumba at independence -check out the natty bow tie and brushed hair style

Hi Anon

Thanks for your comment. Yea I see not so much juxtapositions, but a nostalgic celebration of the past, that is also very much in the now because despite the turmoil the Congo's a hub of modern African culture - the Sapeurs, the fashion designers, music, art etc. There's alot going on there.

Yea I checked the Lumumba style too, Baloji looks alot like him here.
