“An artist's duty is to reflect the times”.   Nina Simone


- My passion is African history; its past glory, present fragility and diverse riches.

- My ambition is to increase awareness, empower people and invoke a positive future for Africa with the rest of the world.

- My music is a result of all of that, rooted in the blues, mixing African traditions with striking modernity and technical mastery.

  That said, it's an honour and a pleasure to entertain you.
