The freshest African sound in years, Mbongwana Star's 2015 debut CD "From Kinshasa" was unleashed to worldwide acclaim. The band, formed out of the legendary group Staff Benda Bilili, hurls Congolese rumba into the 21st Century. A rousing collision of traditional rhythms with a big fistful of post-punk bass and busted electronics, it's "Afrobeat with a solid steel casing" (Fact Magazine). DJ medicineman (No Man's Land, CIUT FM) warms up the dance floor. Presented in association with Batuki Music, Wavelength and Music Africa. Advance tickets available at $20 through www.smallworldmusic.com.
