Konono N°1, Pildammsparken

I think over a thousand people gathered here in Malmö yesterday to see the congolese band Konono N°1. While it’s not afrobeat, I think it’s still worth covering. Kononos music is somewhat vague rhythmically compared to the Afrobeat and rare grooves that I’m used to. Hence, the show didn’t really took off ’til the audience started clapping for entire songs.
