[competition] Benda Bilili CD & DVD


BENDA BILILI! tells the incredible true story behind Kinshasa’s ghetto stars, STAFF BENDA BILILI, and their distinctive musical style; a seductive mix of Congolese rumba, James Brown-esque funk, Cuban mambo, ancestral trance and Jimi Hendrix-esque flourishes. I had the priviledge of attending a screening of the film and a performance and was blown away by their stage presence!

We’ve been given a copy of Benda Bilili’s debut album and also a copy of their DVD which contains over 30 minutes of DVD extras! To be in with a chance of winning you need to answer the following question:

What is the main language spoken in The Democratic of the Congo?

E-mail your answer with ‘Benda Bilili comp’ as the subject to hello[at]iamthenublack[dot]com Winners will be notified by July 27th.



Released on Blu-Ray & DVD on May 16th
