Animal Collective & others cover Congolese Dance Music

A host of international artists are to appear on a compilation celebrating Congolese Dance music. Tradi-Mods Vs Rockers: Alternative Takes on Congotronics will feature Animal Collective, Shackleton, Micachu and the Shapes, Deerhoof and Wilco’s Glenn Kotche and others who will be re-interpreting the music of Konono No 1 and their contempories.

The double CD compilation will be released on Crammed Records, a Belgian based label which was been instrumental in giving attention to Congolese musicians, on 9th November. The hypnotic, abstract dance music of Konono No 1 and Kasai Allstars should be ripe for covering and remixing by some of todays most experimental and
interesting artists.
