Crammed Discs is proud to announce
the upcoming release of 'Kinshasa Succursale'
by the Belgo-Congolese artist BALOJI.
'Kinshasa Succursale' Is the second full length recording by BALOJI. It is more than a follow up
album, it is a completely new departure for the artist. Originally born in Lubumbashi in the south-
eastern portion of the Congo, BALOJI immigrated to Belgium with his father at the age of four. His
eternal quest for self-identity came to light when we spoke with his mother for the first time in 24
years. He knew he had to go back. This recording is the fruit of his return voyage to his motherland.
BALOJI scoured the streets of Kinshasa for the finest musicians and many of them appear here:
Konono No 1, Zaïko Langa-Langa, Royce Mbumba, La chorale de la Grâce, Bebson de la
Rue, and Moïse Illunga among others. This 13 track album features two bonus remixes: one by
underground electronic legend dÉbruit, and the other by G77 with Blitz the Ambassador,
Joya Mooi & Freddy Massamba, all players in the international African scene.
