The Kimbanguist Symphony Orchestra is Beautiful

Sixty minutes reporter Bob Simon starts this feature stating, "Beauty has a way of turning up in places that you least expect it." The Kimbanguist Symphony Orchestra, nestled in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), is stopping people around the world by offering sheer beauty for our ear drums and inspiration to guide humanity.

Their rendition of Beethoven's Ode to Joy reminds us that there most certainly is joy in the Congo, and it is changing the world.

everything makes music if you really want it to...

How beautiful that through the music created by these beautiful Congolese symphony orchestra members we were gifted with their sound. There are precious gifts in the DRC who have much to teach us. Let's start with one of the first lessons shared by the Kimbanguist Symphony Orchestra: PLAY WITH JOY.
