Description

KOKOKO! The collective renowned for its daring sound, experimentations, rolling rhythms, stabbing melodies and powerful live shows comes back with a more electronic, upbeat sound, inspired by the nights of Kinshasa – DR Congo. BUTU means “the night” in Lingala. The album’s idea is a deep and intense dive into the night of Kinshasa, the capital of DR Congo, a noisy 17 million strong, chaotic and amazing city.

All year long, the night comes really fast in Kinshasa because of its geographic location, the city being situated near the equator, in the heart of Africa. At 18h and in a short 15min burning red sunset, full darkness consumes the day out rapidly. The capital, with little electricity, melts instantly into the night, its habitants becoming multiple graphic silhouettes in the front light of the numerous vehicles stuck in traffic. There is density, the senses are exacerbated, this is the moment everything becomes louder! Street vendors having become invisible or distinctable now need to be heard with shouting and drumming, distorted megaphones loops triggered by SD memory cards, phone top ups adverts, car/trucks engines roaring close and far, moto taxi’s klaxons, power generators drone sounds, it is the prelude to the night’s show.
