Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the third-largest city in Africa. Almost ten million people live here and they number among the poorest inhabitants on this planet. Kinshasa is the home of Central Africa’s one and only symphony orchestra – L’Orchestre Symphonique Kimbanguiste.
Kinshasa Symphony is a film about the Congo, about the people of Kinshasa and about music.
This film is programmed in association with The Hallé and the orchestra and choir from the Democratic Republic of Congo will be playing at The Bridgewater Hall after the screening.
