This project benefits Oxfam and includes eleven producers from Western nations with musicians from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Aside from Albarn and Higgenbottom, Dan the Automator and Richard Russell were participants. It is not just a good cause, music from the Congo is well worth a listen songwriters and guitarists from the massive nation people now associate only with war have been making fantastic music for decades. Not a lot of it gets much play in the USA.
TEEN will be playing US dates beginning in October.
