[Watch] DRC Music - "Hallo" (Video)

Damon Albarn and his band of ridiculously talented musicians and producers AKA DRC Music have uploaded a video to go along with a track they've recorded whilst in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This track will feature on the album titled Kinshasa One Two. The track titled "Hallo" features vocal duties from the man himself and is a nice taste of the album, although it is the only track that features Albarn on vox. 

You can pick up the album over here with all proceeds going to Oxfam.
