Damon Albarn - Kinshasa One Two | DRC Music

Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz) gathered a collective dubbed DRC Music for a creative and humanitarian expedition into the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)

DRC Music (T-E-E-D (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs), Dan The Automator, Jneiro Jarel, Richard Russell, Actress, Marc Antoine + other artists) collaborated with homespun talent Bakatola System, Tout Puissant Mukalo, and many Congolese musicians.

The goal was to raise funds for Oxfam. Oxfam brings clean water, schools and food to impoverished regions. The inspired jams produced the Kinshasa One Two album.

The website documents an incredible 7 Day recording session with photos, videos, a documentary trailer, compilation on Soundcloud, interviews, and more.

Kinshasa One Two brings to mind Paul Simon recording Graceland in South Africa, with Ladysmith Black Mambazo and an array of national musicians.
