Staff Benda Bilili

From RNZ Music

In the band's native language of Lingala - as spoken in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo - its name 'Staff Benda Bilili' means to see beyond appearances. Emma Smith talks with two members of Staff Benda Bilili, a group of homeless, Polio-afflicted musicians who have turned their lives around through music.
