      KOKOKO! is a collaboration between a Congolese collective of street musicians who have created instruments out of found objects & French producer Débruit.

      Kokoko is the musical core — electronics, singers, dancers, percussion, a homemade electric guitar — of an arts collective from Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, collaborating with the French electronic musician Debruit. “Buka Dansa” can be translated as “dance till it breaks” or “break the dance,” and this track lives up to both choices. The guitar twangs little riffs, voices whoop and sing and shout, a smooth synthesizer bass line comes and goes; the perky central beat is disrupted from left and right, and sudden key changes add a few more swerves. It’s hyperactive and unstoppable. A full album, “Fongola,” is due in July. PARELES – NEW YORK TIMES
