Congo Calling: An African Orchestra in Britain on BBC iPlayer. Documentary following the inspirational Orchestre Symphonique Kimbanguiste and choir as they make their debut visit to the UK. It captures the latest step in an extraordinary odyssey for the world's first all-black orchestra, formed 20 years ago from a group of self-taught church musicians in Kinshasa, the capital city of the turbulent DRC. #Congo #OSK

Story
Tagline
Congo Calling’s vision is for a peaceful and just Congo, where people can live in stable and prosperous communities, where children are not enlisted, where women are not raped as an instrument of war, and where miners work for fair wages in human conditions.
Introduction
Congo Calling was launched at TEDxExeter 2012 following Bandi Mbubi’s powerful call for the development of fair trade technology which uses ethically-sourced, conflict-free minerals from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Illegal mining in the eastern part of the DRC fuels the continuing war there and denies local people the peace, stability and prosperity which would flow from the ethical management of the Congo’s natural resources.
