Editorial Reviews

The ghettos of Kinshasa - the devastated capital of a country politically and economically adrift - are filled with many gifted yet impoverished musicians. Among them, Jupiter Bokondji, the leader of the band Okwess International, acts as our narrator and

Jupiters Dance is a briliant DVD/CD Film about the lives of musicians in war torn Congo Republic. If you are interested in Africa/African music/Third world problems then this is an excellent film and the CD is equally brilliant !! I had to buy from Amazon USA as could not find it on sale in UK at present. Check it all out on You Tube !

This video is not only a great introduction to the variety of music in Kinshasa, but through its presentation, you see the lives of the people of poorer areas of the city. The film reveals people's perspectives and amazing resilience in this troubled country. After viewing the film, I did a heavy search on the Internet for artists shown in the film, and although I was pleased to see that some have had exposure in Europe, most have not and I could not find recordings (although some have video clips in various places including Utube - mainly the same ones you see in the film). Some of these folks are incredibly inspiring and talented. The focus on Jupiter/Okwess Int'l was disappointing once I began to see short clips from the other artists. These are musicians who need exposure and promotion - would love to see more. Definitely worth seeing this film on numerous fronts. (..and let's hope to hear & see more from the artists!)
