View Full Version : Staff Benda Bilili
is a brilliant Congolese band -- and they are relevant to photography: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/newsnight/8369900.stm (play the video/music link at the top).
The relevance? Unless photography (or music) is something you have to do, you won't understand.
Very much like that!
roger, thanks for the link.
They are great. The plight of the disabled in any place other than the richest of the first world countries is tremendous. And yet, people survive. In the case of this band (which is terrific!) they even prosper.
No whining allowed, in other words. Let that be a lesson to me!
Check out another Congolese band, Konono No. 1 (http://www.crammed.be/craworld/crw27/e/index.htm). They are also terrific. Homemade electronics.
Interesting link. Thanks for that. Good music as well as a show of indomitable spirit. I was particularly interestied to see the Congalese dobro.
