Konono No 1

Recently i have become obsessed with this band Konono No 1, and in particular their song 'paradiso' which is the video posted above. They are a congolese band who made all of their own instruments (AND AMPS AND PA SYSTEMS) from scrap/scratch/hacked equipment and make this amazing joyous, riotous, hypnotic african noise. The song is 7 minutes long but worth every second so please have a listen!
