Wheelchair-bound, homeless-- AND music-makers


I came across a story about some Congolese musicians who live behind a zoo in Kinshasa who, with the accompaniment of some local youth, have produced an album!  You can go to a fantastic music site, Mog, to hear two tracks from the group called Staff Benda Bilili.
