Songplay History

  • Troy Nelson : 02/27/2021 07:10 AM
    Kinshasa native Jupiter Bokondji is evidence of the rich talent coming from the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. His project Jupiter & Okwess fuses traditional Congolese music styles like soukous, rumba, and kwassa kwassa with more universal ones like rock, funk, and blues for something completely unique and yet wholly universal.

    Jupiter Bokondji Ilola, now 54, didn’t choose a comfortable path. As the son of a diplomat from Zaire, he spent much of his childhood in Tanzania and East Germany, and he could have pursued an education in Europe. Instead he left his family as a teenager to live in Kinshasa, the capital, and began working as a musician. Like many African musicians, Jupiter writes socially conscious admonitions to be carried by dance grooves; he has billed himself as the “rebel general.”

    Jupiter Bokondji comes from the troubled capital of Democratic Republic of the Congo. Jupiter and his band Okwess play music that feels both African and American, with Jupiter's early musical tastes inspired by The Jackson 5, James Brown and Kool and the Gang, plus the sounds of Motown.
