Kinshasa One Two
DRC Music is the name of the latest Damon Albarn project. The erstwhile Blur and Gorillaz front man is picking up on the work he first offered with his Mali Music album in 2002.
Here the musical voyage was to the Democratic Republic of Congo to record an album mixing dubstep and pop textures within the African music. It’s an interesting collaboration. Albarn is only present (vocally) on the first track; the entire album created in just five days.
Another reason to support this, apart from the intoxicating grooves and fascinating musical ideas, is that all proceeds go to Oxfam.
