Boston-based African style band AIR CONGO play music from the 1960’s-70’s Kinshasa/Brazzaville scene-–the music of Docteur Nico, Tabu Ley, Les Bantous De La Capitale, TPOK Jazz, and more!  Drawing inspiration from the instrumental sessions that Tabu Ley’s band Afrisa recorded to be played on the jets of Congo Air, our instrumental readings of this amazing music are upbeat ravers of another age. The group is led by guitarist Nathaniel Braddock, also the leader of the much celebrated Occidental Brothers Dance Band Int’l.  He is joined in this group by a cast of Boston’s hottest jazz and world music players from Kotoka Brass and Sawaari.
