Congo Cowboys were formed in 2016 by Freshlyground members Simon Attwell (banjo), Julio Sigauque (bass) and Congolese singer Chris Bakalanga (vocals and guitar), together with South African drummer Lumanyano Mzi. The band have released two EPs – The self titled Congo Cowboys in 2019, and YOKA in 2021. The Congo Cowboys explore music that draws on the foot stomping qualities of Bluegrass & Country, reimagined through Kwassa Kwassa African rhythms and Soukous guitar. The Congo meets the Deep South in a gritty exploration of Americana and ol’ timey ditties. Bringing the banjo back to Africa!
