Little live duet by 2 of our good artists representing Kasayi and Luba culture.
Title: Nganyi wansamba? (Qui va me consoler)
This is a must see documentary featuring Jupiter Bokonji and his group Okwess International but also other very talented artists from Kinshasa working their way through. I actually bought the DVD years back and it came with a music CD of all Okwess’ songs heard in the documentary. Jupiter Bokonji is one of the artists who bring Kasayi culture upfront, in his own way, and I must say his music is super good. I totally agree when he says Congolese people don’t know the well of talent present in Kongo. It’s so true. We’ve have only scratched the surface!!!
African-American R&B singer Akon was in Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo, on Sunday for a performance and boy did he heed the advice of the guys at Homeland on Ebola. The ‘Lonely’ singer didn’t feel one bit alone as he climbed into the inflatable bubble and jumped into the waiting hands of concertgoers who lifted him around.
