Mini bio
Explosive. "Na Kozonga", the latest album from Jupiter and his band Okwess, is a burst of energy that captivates the body and nourishes the spirit. The Rebel General and his pyrotechnicians have drawn from all the rhythms of Congo since their debut to reveal their superpowers: those of rock and funk, ready for any union and every invitation! From Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz) to Money Mark (Beastie Boys), and now on this third album, collaborating with RogĂȘ's samba, Marcelo D2's rap, the brass of New Orleans, or the voice of Chilean singer and activist Ana Tijoux, Jupiter & Okwess fear neither encounters nor the wildest journeys. They have even conquered Latin America and joyfully reinvented the triangular trade of sounds! It's obvious for someone who, from his very first record, proclaimed, "Ich bin ein Congolese, The World is my land". "We all have ancestors in Africa", Jupiter reminds us, "who also practiced music. And if Africa resembles a revolver, its trigger is found... in Congo". Ready, set, go! From Kinshasa, Jupiter and his merry gunmen give the signal: a new journey around the world awaits.
