7:32 am
festivals and exhibitions across the world. but to day we are meeting up and coming congolese artist, whose work really making chassis art scene tech no longer with our art. we go to people on the streets because when we performing art centers, nobody sees us. only the people in high places come to see us there. but we want to be seen by calling people africans like us or so my name is particular to i'm an artist in duck pu yellow. the a bell. i'm self taught performer. i didn't go to our school. i've not been doing art for 7 years. in the heart of kinshasa, famous art neighborhood, latangelo life, the artists collective. exactly. i love you that the house of beautiful life here, the artist, residencies are for artist, like patrick, self taught. but one thing to dedicate their lives can be, i think i've also in the past it was difficult for people to
7:33 am
understand. when i went back home, everyone would come and they would even call to say, where are you? i tell them i'm at home and they would say no, you're not at home. you've been on the river or looking through the trash. but after a while i started explaining to them, not my art is not trash or you cycle trash and turn it into. and slowly the started to understand. yeah, yeah. klaus. one of family and community have accepted choice appreciation for his work in terms of financial games. it's hard to come by. the be, are these odd world is largely self organizing, collective like bees or supported through the efforts of more successful tumbling artist, as well as a handful for an art initiative for the artist here performances and the chances to sell their artworks. and we appreciate the additional
7:34 am
ag, they are all those difficulties. they are people come here and say, i'll buy these for 500 euros. they take it, and afterwards we see that they sell 842-503-0000 euros. and there is no fair remuneration for the creator to walk up. because we have children, we have houses to rent and families. i left a school and that is all on adam is a 9540 to his marriage or his mom. they force him to questions out like just that class lately for my mean, i've only gone up. we go was united, but literally colonialist came and divided us like a kick. when you are in front of a broken mirror, you are not going to see yourself in full. so this is what has happened to africa. and specifically, congo are the same time. the mirror also shows us. the beauty is the seller. lou
7:35 am
mila is la. both the these are playing a quite come to self. see, we've been called sorcerers delhi quin's. but afterwards, after watching us by staying with us, they understood us all that blue. we are play and not a gas all of his fire. we also do a great service for our city. we pick up the trash on the road and turn it into art in order to restore kin labelle kinshasa the beautiful. because right now our city is filled with trash. bell skimming on speaking with them. all i can say is, wow, you know, making something beautiful out of trash shows real genius in my opinion. but congolese art is not just important for the country by the whole world. did you know? unesco has recently added congolese boom bar to its list of intangible welled heritage
7:36 am
. the musical genera on dance is often referred to as the song chuckles congolese history to celebration on morning. but still not all congolese feel like their cultural heritage is appreciated enough. in kinshasa, we met some artists from all over the country who told us about the struggles the fees in the our quest for recognition and support for the our work. this takes us street to our streets debate. ah, hi everyone, my name is wendy bash and you are watching the 77 percent magazine. we are here in kinshasa, in the democratic republic of the congo in this city. there is music and art everywhere. so today we are talking about god sure. and appreciation of the cultural heritage. i'm going to the 1st experience alice, can you tell us what our means to you? love bowmois acts for me. it's something that defines you. what is the component

7:39 am
us the afternoon is that in demo of copyright and cultural policies, nothing has been done yet. so that makes you disagree. absolutely. well, yeah, you did absolutely. every effort by the previous effort of the current minister of the minister of culture who made the mischa plants. but every time any minister comes in, it doesn't work out. we only start from scratch, define a closet, will we ask ourselves, what's going on? i'd have people r idle sitting on the hands of what they are going to walk to microphone d. w form massey. thank you very much. now i'm going back to alice combs should room like lou. they said they support us on copyright issues. i'm going to stay on that right now. i've been in a lawsuit for 2 years against a big very company that infringed my copyrights. and i brought all the proofs forward. now it up and saw that just is us. it's one way's in this country. now. i as a small fish who does not have $100000.00 to bribe people,
7:40 am
i find myself sing monsters. i find myself 1st, sing, monsters facing a multinational, the bribes important people who are in the sockets. there have been accusations of corruption, not the judicial level as well. suddenly nothing has been done about it for the last 2 years. we've shown on the food logistics of it. do santiago, give a we have a concrete example here of an artist whose right of have been violated. mr. lama was talking about copyrights and your party is rolling the country when you want to say to what you just intended to like. what he's saying is, the reason why we came to power, the president repeated, it's even in gama. he said, if we have a real problem with our justice system, who will not be able to change the country, we have to change the country with every one's involvement dumont. so now we are going to look at this treacherous because you have out is here, we're talking about copyright. they're talking about the value of they were, do you at this point, feel that you have been some point in you? in some spoke to her nestle, we're
7:41 am
a congolese structure. we thought are the help of the institutions. but if it doesn't work, it's just not going to work as a result or we don't have any help. but we are making doing with what we have about to help the i little of perkins, or even our government for ah, what the exterior? no, so to know liz, after to decent. so i'm going directly to deal dory. d. mr. deb and out. what do you want to st. jude? the problem is global. it's the responsibility of the politicians. but it's also the stakeholders who are responsible. the artist must fight. we have been able to make our rumble famous on the other side of europe. thanks to this musician. and that's without any support from politics. why did this happen? they understood that they have to sell their product orders. so hello, every thing that we heard today is there any or for the cultural sector here in the assay ball yet yet liz walked while yet miss walk basket were that is not for me.
7:42 am
that is harper, because we will not stop fighting. we won't stop doing what we used to do because they are to be political representatives to what it means that they are powerless. but at the same time, they try to blame us. my hope is that mister hardy ambassador will help us to find solutions to our problems. to day, let's look at all these for us as we have here. data casino, who to day is doing huge things. but why did doug get more support from french and belgium government than their congolese government? i have toward the united states of toward many countries in the world of hard support from the us government, the french government, the english government, the belgium government, but never from the congress government. however, since i am an artist here, i pay the convoy his government every 2 years. i renew my artist cards, which are useless to me. why are you the head of a country if you don't know how to do anything for us? well, i have a lot to say,
7:43 am
but i want to stop here once i get here from bonham. bullshit book of to that, the armies remember i taylor, i don't know. let's close reef ratliff. is there any hope for the cultural sector today in the asi is i would say the same thing as my brother when it comes to having hope we do what we do because we are passionate and we want the generations that will come after us to be able to say that there are people who fought for such a class. i think that in this sense, yes, if we have held up. but it is a little difficult because the statement that he made is clear. if you have 5 years and 3 years have already passed and nothing has happened and 2 years, i laughed well, you should not be surprised when songs like the ones of alice are coming alice, we are coming to the end of our sure, thank you all for watching the feel free to share and comment on our page. you know, talking about art brings out the passion in people. but clearly the crate of art
