Introducing Crank LuKongo
“Each track reminded me of a different era within the city. Its rhythms and patterns all setting the landscape of each story being told.”
“DC-based Music Collective Crank LuKongo has gotten the ball rolling in a major way. Their new album Born Again is the jam session and history lesson you’ve been missing in your life.”
