From Kinshasa is the debut studio album by Congolese band Mbongwana Star, released on May 19, 2015 on World Circuit

Mbongwana Star – From Kinshasa: exclusive album stream. It turned out to be the work of Coco Ngambali and Theo Nsituvuidi, formerly famed as two of the guys in the souped-up tricycle wheelchairs from Staff Benda Bilili, the band of paraplegic and homeless musicians whose rise from grinding poverty in Kinshasa to global recognition was one of the more startling musical stories of recent years. There are certainly noises that feel oddly recognisable to western ears in Mbongwana Star’s dense mesh of sound. Put through a distortion pedal, Ngambali and Nsituvuidi’s guitar lines frequently bear a weird resemblance to the itchy, agitated sound of post-punk: a track called Kimpala revolves around a wah-wah guitar riff that might have stepped off a late 60s acid-rock album.

From Kinshasa To The Moon. Written-By – Coco Yakala Ngambali, Doctor L, Theo Nzonza Nsituvuidi. Recorded in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo at Espace Bomoko & Hôtel Finesse. Mixed at Black Door, St Ouen France, mastered at Black Door. Label Code: LC 02339. Other Versions (2 of 2) View All.

With their debut Mbongwana Star have made a really classic record for the ages, and what’s more, one that could shape a whole lot of music to come.
