In a continued effort to introduce more modern sounds to the Tambour d'Afrique format Guy decided to play some music from a few of his Myspace Friends. We discovered that there are so many artists on Myspace making wonderful Congolese and African music, it is only right that we help spread their great music through the radio show and this blog.
First up is Tresor Manuaku. You may recognize the name. Tresor is infact Pepe Felly Manuaku's son. He is a sensation in France and is gaining much popularity in Europe. He is a dynamic performer who not only raps and sings but dances with much passion. His music is a mix of Hip Hop, R&B and traditional Congolese music. He has a new album by the name of Destin which features the song Mwasi Kitoko, that Guy played on the previous broadcast. You can listen to more clips of his music on his myspace page:
He was recently featured on French news. Thank you to Youtuber, gmanuaks for the clip:
