Democratic Republic of Congo in London: Baloji at Village Underground

Searching for Congolese culture for our World in London challenge, we came across rising Congolese-Belgian star Baloji.

Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and raised in Belgium, Baloji combines rap and hip-hop with Congolese rhumba to create a unique sound.

You can catch him in London on 23 May, when he’ll perform his first London headline show at Village Underground.
