Album of the Week: Where’s the One? by Congotronics International


Album: Where’s the One?
Artist: Congotronics International
Release Date: April 29, 2022
Label: Crammed Discs
Favorite Tracks:

  • Where’s the One
  • Kule Kule Redux
  • Doubt/Hope
  • Banza Banza
  • Guiyome

Thoughts:  The debut album from Congotronics International is an epic set of 23-tracks.  The supergroup is made up of members of Konono No.1, Kasai Allstars, Deerhoof, Juana Molina, Wildbirds & Peacedrums, and Skeletons’ Matthew Mehlan for a total of 19 musicians from 4 continents.  The musical style is a fusion of traditional music of Congo with various rock styles.  The result is a music that is infectious, and not surprisingly a dense and loud conflagration of instruments and voices.

  1. Sounds cool. I’ll check it out when I get a chance. I tend to love fusion of nearly any sort since it creates new sounds. Some fail to bring me back for more, but always interesting to hear.
