Kanga Munoko Yoka (‘Shut up and listen’) is a series of listening sessions filmed during the Kinzonzi exhibition programme in Kinshasa. The film accompanies Pisko Crane and Aicha Mena Kanieba – the founders of explosive music collective Fulu Miziki – during their artistic process. From the creation of musical instruments and 'eco' fashion, to intimate rehearsals, and unexpected musical performances in the National Museum of the DRC. Moving beyond Western representations of otherness and categories of 'exotic music', Kanga Munoko Yoka shifts towards artistic freedom and its interaction with musical embodiment and environmental action.

Miguel Buenrostro is an artist and filmmaker from Tijuana, Mexico, based in Berlin. His work reflects upon the condition of the border as a site of knowledge production and interconnection.
