[Live Show] Ngoma Kongo

Ngoma Kongo est une très bonne émission culturelle dans laquelle la présentatrice visite les régions du Congo sans quitter Kinshasa. À chaque émission, un groupe de musiciens vient présenter quelques chansons typiques traditionelles et répondent aux questions. Cette fois-ci, elle a fait une halte au Kasayi avec Papa Kabongo et les Kasayi Allstars.
