Hip hop is more than vulgar bling-bling interrupted by commercial breaks. At least if the music has 'bongo flavour', which it does among the thirteen rappers in the artist collective TMK Wanaume Halisi, which has named itself after the neighbourhood in Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, where they live and fight for their break-through. The group is a collective do-it-yourself enterprise that mixes African rhythms and modern hip hop in a pronounced desire to make music for all human beings. And they indeed succeed in their creative and cultural cross-pollination between western and local traditions. 'Bongo Superstars' is all about doing something to make your dreams come true and about having fun while it lasts - and it's also a much needed reminder of where music comes from.
