MUSIC

"CROIS-MOI": RUMBA CONGOLAISE AT ITS BEST

The Congolese singer-songwriter Toussaint Lyondholi works since he was a child alongside renowned artists from around the world, such as Yondo Sisters, Kenichi Tamura and Mavatiku Visi Michelino, before releasing his first EP at the age of 57. The result is a little masterpiece: the melodies and lyrics are both rhythmic, melodic, romantic, dreamy and charming; they will not only seduce Congolese rumba lovers.

Un ensemble des belles mélodies et des chansons arrangées avec professionnalisme. Des voix, des paroles qui séduisent, sans oublier les instruments qui accompagnent les chansons.

Mavatiku Michelino a marqué en lettres de noblesse ses prestations de guitariste dans de grands ensembles de musique congolais. Wuta Mayi compère du précité, a eu un parcours de chanteur- auteur- compositeur empli d’allégresse, dont l’apogée, dans les décennies soixante-dix et quatre-vingt a fait tache d’huile dans le contexte national et international. Malou et Patou, deux talentueuses du chant, ont également apporté leur concours à la réalisation de l’œuvre qui est attendue sur le marché. Toussaint Lyondholi est le frère des «Yondho Sisters».
