Staff Benda Bilili: disabled street musicians go global

My new favourite band: Staff Benda Bilili – a groups of Congolese disabled street musicians who are wowing the world music scene.

They were featured on Newsnight last night and sadly are just coming to the end of a UK tour. Many of the band members of the band suffer from polio and they also feature a former street kid who plays a home-made instrument made out of an old tin can and a wire. Sounds brilliant though.

You can listen to their music on MySpace or check out the clip below
