From California to the New York Island Staff Benda Bilili Performs

Q.  What do you get when you take polio survivors, a zoo in Kinshasa, DR Congo, homemade musical instruments, and a strong message?  A. Beautiful Music.  And if you are luck enough to live in or near any of the US cities where Staff Benda Bilili is performing in September go see for yourself.  One of their key messages – ‘the only real handicaps are not in the body but the mind.’  And as you watch and listen you only see the joy in the faces and the energy in the voices.

Appropriately enough Benda Bilili translates as ‘look beyond appearances’
