Congo Cowboys is a band formed by Freshlyground members Simon Attwell (banjo), Julio Sigauque (bass) and Congolese lead singer Chris Bakalanga (guitar), together with South African drummer Uni-ty Mzi. The band is excited to present music that draws on the foot stomping qualities of Bluegrass & Country, reimagined through Kwassa Kwassa African rhythms and Soukous guitar. The Congo meets the Deep South in a gritty exploration of Americana and ol’ timey ditties. Banjo and bluesy bass lines from boys in boots. It’s fire and hell, whisky and ribs, murder in the pines…BOYA TOSEPELA!
