  3. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Benda Bilili!

    I have some difficulties with this kind of movies, showing development aid in producing a CD and finally bringing the musicians to Europe. The music created is clearly a product for the European market. Compare the original recording sessions with the result of the postproduction on CD at the end: The roughness of the sound is domesticated by the use of resonance, important characteristics of the music are destroyed.
