The night is like a lovely tune Beware my foolish heart How white the ever constant moon Take care my foolish heart There's a line between love and fascination That's hard to see, how many names such as this For they both have the very same sensation When you're locked in the magic of a kiss Her lips are much too close to mine Beware my foolish heart But should our eager lips combine Then let the fire start For this time it isn't fascination Or a dream that will fade and fall apart
Staff Benda Bilili are a group of Congolese street musicians. They live around the grounds of the zoo in Kinshasa, and play music which is rooted in rumba, with elements of old-school rhythm'n'blues and reggae. The core of the band consists of four senior singers/guitarist, who all disabled (they suffered from poliomyelitis when they were young) and move around in spectacularly customized tricycles. They are backed by a younger rhythm section consisting of ex-sheges, abandoned street kids who were taken under the protection of the older members of the band. The soloist is an 18 year-old boy who plays astounding electric guitar-like solos on a one-stringed lute he designed and built himself out of a tin can. at's something exciting your business offers?

Full marks to Wally Badarou, rarely have Egypt 80 sounded as good as they do here. The complexities of late-period Fela are handled beautifully and the sound has a striking clarity and sheen to it, with all the many elements perfectly balanced. Fela's little spoken intro (after the solos) gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. The songs themselves are growers rather than grabbers, but amply reward careful listening. Just Like That (from the same sessions?) is equally good. Give customers a reason to do business with you.
