The ghettos of Kinshasa —the devastated capital of a country politically and economically adrift— are filled with many gifted, yet impoverished musicians. Their outstanding talent, humour and vital energy are their only means of survival.
Amongst them, Jupiter, the charismatic leader of the band "Okwess International", acts as our narrator and guide. This local Don Quixote introduces us to the Kinshasa music scene —teenage rappers, handicapped bluesmen, street children, griots and guitar craftsmen— and describes his 20-year struggle to bring his music out of the ghetto.


« La danse de Jupiter » est une plongée dans les ghettos de Kinshasa, à la rencontre de ses innombrables musiciens qui se battent pour sortir du néant : Rappeurs, bluesmen handicapés, griots, enfants des rues, inventeurs d'instruments, ndombolistes... Tous avec leurs mots racontent Kinshasa et ses combines. Leur talent, leur énergie vitale et leur humour face à l'adversité forcent le respect.
Parmi eux, Jupiter, leader charismatique du groupe Okwess International. Personnage à la Don Quichotte, il nous raconte sa ville et son combat de 20 ans pour faire sortir sa musique du ghetto.
