$10 Off Tickets to Staff Benda Bilili at Symphony Space on Thursday, October 18
Sorry you missed this offer...
- Staff Benda Bilili (Lingala for "look beyond appearances") is a group of musicians with a story as uplifting as their Congolese rumba-funk music. The paraplegic singers and guitarists are backed by a rhythm section comprised of abandoned street children.
- The collective lives on the grounds of the Kinshasa Zoo in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and rides around in jazzed-up customized tricycles—and now has two albums, a documentary and international tours under its belt.
- With this Time Out Offer, you can see Staff Benda Bilili's New York debut, featuring rumba-rooted grooves, vibrant vocals and killer solos on a homemade one-string tin-can lute, for $10 off.
Need to know:
- The show begins at 8pm.
- All sales are final.
