Holy shit. Congolese performance collective KOKOKO! is electrifying. Though their only published media online is a single promo video, the band introduces themselves so perfectly, emerging fully formed from each frame. They take DIY to new heights, fashioning the tools for electronic music out of found objects and Congolese instruments. “Survival fuels creativity,” one member explains in the video. This is more than survival. This is genius.
