MP3: Deerhoof - "Travels Broaden the Mind"

On June 30th, Le Guess Who? presents Congotronics vs. Rockers in Tivoli, Utrecht feat. Konono N°1, Deerhoof, Juana Molina, Kasai Allstars, Wildbirds & Peacedrums and Skeletons. A hybrid mix of various Western musicians toying around with the music from "tradi-moderne" Congolese bands. Tickets are available via venue Tivoli and Ticketservice for foreign visitors.

To hear an example of what this Western take on "tradi-moderne" Congolese music sounds like, download Deerhoof's "Travels Broaden the Mind", which is the Bay Area art-punk band's version of the Kasai Allstars song "Wa Muluendu". The song appears on the compilation album Tradi-Mods vs. Rockers: Alternative Takes on Congotronics. Deerhoof adapted the original for their guitar/bass/drums setup and wrote their own lyrics, basing them on the original lyrics.
