°^SISSI und die Chinesische Wäscherei°^ präsentieren: KONONO NO.1 (Kongo)

They are finally back! After hibernating for almost two years, Kinshasa's mighty thumb piano rockers are expected to tour Europe again in February 2015. Get ready for one of the most exciting band on the current live circuit. But please make sure to get in touch soon, the dates are filling up quickly!

The group was founded over 40 years ago by Mingiedi, a virtuoso of the likembe (the traditional instrument sometimes called "sanza" or "thumb piano", consisting of metal rods attached to a resonator). Their line-up includes three electric likembés (bass, medium and treble), equipped with hand-made microphones built from magnets salvaged from old car parts, and plugged into amplifiers. There's also a rhythm section which uses traditional as well as makeshift percussion (pans, pots and car parts) and a peculiar sound system including megaphones dating from the colonial period, which they call "lance-voix" ('voice-throwers').

The members of Konono No. 1 come from an area which sits right across the border between Congo and Angola. Their repertoire draws largely on Bazombo trance music, to which they've had to incorporate the originally-unwanted distortions of their sound system.

Worldwide reactions to their debut album Congotronics 1 were exceptional, and remarkably won the band massive favour in the dance and alternative rock scenes as well as in world music circles: they picked up a Grammy nomination and played to thousands at festivals such as Sonar, Coachella and The Big Chill. Meanwhile an army of celebrity admirers gathered, including Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Beck, Björk (whose album Volta featured a guest Konono performance), and Herbie Hancock, to whose „Imagine Project“ they also contributed. Konono No. 1 have been remixed by Mark Ernestus, Micachu & The Shapes, Burnt Friedman and Optimo and others.
