About the Show

Co-presented by The Cedar Cultural Center and Walker Art Center

These sounds are emanating from the ghetto and downtown clubs of the Congolese capital in between the government-imposed power cuts. The artists actually bring something alive in the chaos of the 3rd biggest African city. They have strong new ideas with DIY constructed instruments and a powerful and unique drive. KOKOKO! is the soundtrack of Kinshasa’s tomorrow.

Note from the venue: “This is a standing show with an open floor. The Cedar always reserves a section of seats for patrons who require special seating accommodations. To request seating or other access accommodations, please go to our Access page.”

Themes

  • This creative and resourceful band makes their own instruments out of objects they find on the street. What is something creative and resourceful that you have seen done in your community?
  • Despite the uniqueness of their instruments, they would not be as successful if the resulting music was not appealing on its own merits. How does one find the balance between natural talent and hard work?
