The Kinshasa Symphony Orchestra

The trailer for the documentary, “Kinshasa Symphony,” about the Kimbanguist Symphony Orchestra and Chior. The orchestra, named for a Congolese resistance leader, is based in Kinshasa, Congo’s capital.

The film, co-directed by Claus Wischmann and Martin Baer, premieres next week at the Berlin Film Festival.

I have been following the bands exploits online since the first photographic projects and clips of the Symphony appeared. I am definitely looking forward to its US premiere.
