Black Ants Always Fly Together, One Bangle Makes No Sound on Crammed Discs 

Kasai Allstars Resized
Kasai Allstars Black Ants

Key players in the Congotronics movement, Kasai Allstars create wild, hypnotic music in which electric guitars are matched against amplified, distorted likembé (thumb piano), xylophones and insistent vocal chants. Their fourth album is their most varied and sophisticated yet, designed to appeal to fans of electronica and alt-rock as well as African music. A Top of the World in the July 2021 issue (#169).
