      of Congo, with a core group of 23 musicians and dancers total, Wenge
      Musica BCBG's reputation has swelled since its roots in 1981. Led by
      JB M'Piana, the band creates an electrifying sound, filled with a
      mix of traditional and contemporary ethnic styles, weaving a world
      of mesmerizing dance and rhythm.


      In recent years, a spirited but intense performance, has earned a
      notable feather in their cap when, on Septermber 22nd 2001, they
      performed at the 17,000-capacity Bercy arena in Paris. JB Mpiana
      raised the charts with his 1997 album "Feux de L'amour" .
