Biography

With Blur bandmates Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree, Albarn released seven albums which placed the band at the forefront of Britpop. He is a not-so evil mastermind behind the most successful virtual band ever, Gorillaz, - and the voice of spiky blue-haired frontman 2D – whose four multi-million selling albums contain elements of rock, trip-hop, pop, hip-hop, electronica, and ...

Editorial Reviews

In July 2011, DRC Music - a collective of producers led by Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz) - headed to Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo to make a record with contemporary Congolese musicians. DRC Music is comprised of producers: T-E-E-D (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs), Dan The Automator, Jneiro Jarel, Richard Russell, Actress, Marc Antoine, Alwest, Remi Kabaka, Rodaidh McDonald and Kwes. Each of them has donated their time and waived all royalties to this work. The sounds created were completely different to normal instrumentation because the local instruments were primarily homemade from whatever was available. As Dan the Automator said, ''The equipment they created to make music was amazing. The drive and spirit to create with whatever was available was the highlight to me--old fans, tins, tree trunks, homemade drums, metal rods.'' The Democratic Republic of Congo has long been wracked by conflict and is home to one of the world's worst humanitarian crises. Proceeds from the album will benefit the local performers and Oxfam's work in Congo. Oxfam fights poverty and suffering in DRC through the empowerment of individuals and communities based on their rights, such as the right to clean water or to live in safety. Oxfam has been in DRC for 50 years and now has more than 350 staff in projects across the country, responding to emergency situations in order to save lives.

Interesting album combining Afrobeat and some of Damon's more classic style. Mostly a chance for the Congolese to express themselves, I've had this disc in my car for months now. Love it.

Damon Albarn is a beast and so are all the other producers attached to this album. I love how good he has gotten at blending modern sounds into works like this and Bravest Man in the Universe.

Kinshasa is a contemporary, urban translation of real Congolese music.
I predict Damon Albarn will be one of those names almost every knows, like Brian Eno, Phillip Glass, Mickey Hart.. ect...

I have some world music, mostly of the putamayo, all things considered variety. Safe, consumable music.
I wish I was cool enough to realize how good Damon's non gorillaz work was the first time I head it.
Don't make the mistake of passing this and his other music over. Just let it grow on you.

It wasn't quite what I expected. I was wishing Ode to Joy would be on it as it was on 60 Minutes. Nothing about it was recognizable.
