Listen to the brand new music here
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.
