NYC, See Konono No 1 Live All Weekend!


New York City, check out Congo's own Konono No 1 live two times this weekend. They first hit on Saturday, July 17th, as part of Celebrate Brooklyn, joining Meta and the Cornerstones at Prospect Park, gates open at 2, FREE show. If you can't make Saturday, make sure to catch them this Sunday, July 18th at Le Poisson Rouge for a much more intimate vibe. Doors open at 7pm, and it's 18+. Combining unique sounds of electronica, world, afrobeat and avant-rock, Konono No 1's high energy performance is definitely something you don't want to miss. Follow me after the jump for Konono No 1 featuring Baloji in their video Karibu ya Bintou.
