Double vinyl LP pressing. 2014 sophomore album from the mind-blowing, mythic collective from Kinshasa, DRC. BEWARE THE FETISH is a collection of wild, trance-inducing, raw intensity. The core of Kasai Allstars consists of fifteen musicians from five bands, all from the Kasai region of Congo, but originating from five different ethnic groups. They each have their own culture, language and musical traditions, which were always thought to be incompatible until these musicians decided to transcend their differences and work together. Kasai Allstars draw their songs from festive/ritual music and the lyrics tackle matters such as sorcery, social commentary and traditional wisdom. BEWARE THE FETISH presents a broader scope of Kasai Allstars' music, probing deeper into the musicians' repertoires and styles, with the help of a large array of guests.
