Maisha Soul:

Congolese artists -- filmmakers, poets, musicians, and more -- are leading a movement dedicated to creating a strong future for DR Congo. Members from pop band Maisha Soul lend their musical and filmmaking talents to help people in Congo to share their voices.

Communication is difficult in Congo. After decades of degradation and war, there is not much infrastructure for sharing information. The flow of information we take for granted in the west is mostly still in large swaths of the country. Smart phone technology and the internet is changing that stillness, however. Music and short video is an enormously effective way to share a message.
