Bakolo Music International is the oldest band of Congolese rumba from Kinshasa. The former Wendo kolosoy died in 2008 and so the band lost their leading man. Under the protection of Congolese fetishists, the old musicians started to play Wendo’s music again and started dreaming of a new International tour. This summer the remaining musicians, many nearly 80 years old, will live their dream and tour for the very last time.
