Konono N°1 record with Bjork, tour US

Konono N°1 Live in JapanI have to admit that the Congolese outfit Konono N°1 is not my favourite band. In fact, their saturated sound drive me nuts. But they are unique, which is probably reason enough for Bjork to invite them to record on her new album alongside Timbaland and Antony. They have a new release out (“Live in Tokyo” – only available digitally), and are currently appearing across the US and later in Europe. Click through to find the concert dates.        iTunes
