Boston-based African style band AIR CONGO play music from the 1960s-70s Kinshasa/Brazzaville scene while Void Union Preserve the Jamaican music of the 1960s, collaborate with Skas originators, and actively recruit guest players from the ensembles that have proven equal to the task of reinventing the genre.

Boston-based African style band AIR CONGO play music from the 1960s-70s Kinshasa/Brazzaville scenethe music of Docteur Nico, Tabu Ley, Les Bantous De La Capitale, Franco et lOrch TPOK Jazz, and more!  Drawing inspiration from the instrumental sessions that Tabu Leys band Afrisa recorded to be played on the jets of Congo Air, our instrumental readings of this amazing music are upbeat dance ravers of another age.

Conventional wisdom has guided bands in the computer age towards isolationism; find ones turf, stake a claim, and interpret peer success as a call to arms. Void Union has propelled itself out of cyberspaces din with a counterintuitive mission statement: Preserve the Jamaican music of the 1960s, collaborate with Skas originators, and actively recruit guest players from the ensembles that have proven equal to the task of reinventing the genre. Some of those musicians include Derrick Morgan, The Skatalites, Lynval Golding (The Specials), King Django, Angelo Moore (Fishbone), Chris Rhodes (The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Spring Heeled Jack),and David Hillyard (The Slackers, Hepcat), all of whom feature on the Void Unions recordings. In November of 2010, Vin Gordon (The Skatalites, Bob Marley and the Wailers) joined the group for a watershed European tour.
