After the release of "Hotel Impala", Baloji felt an urge to go to the Congo and start a deeper exploration of his roots. When he set out for Kinshasa, his original plan was to work with local musicians and rework the songs from his latest album. The results were so exciting that he ended up writing and recording entirely new songs. The resulting "Kinshasa Succursale" album features contributions from some of the finest musicians from Kinshasa, including Konono No1 & Zaïko Langa Langa, as well as a contribution by Amp Fiddler. The album also contains two remixes, one by UK electronic producer déBruit, and another which features rising Ghanaian-American hip hop artist Blitz the Ambassador.
