But the big surprise came with us from Congo debut album Mbongwana Star , a group formed by former members of Staff Benda Bilili, a band composed of paraplegic street musicians who thrilled us in recent years with their two albums; but a few months ago they decided to dissolve and form this new band with a much more experimental and risky Congolese sound.
