ABOUT KIZABA – https://www.kizaba.ca/

LIONEL KIZABA, is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, pioneer of Afro-Congolese electro music, based in Montreal, Canada, who sings in French, English, Kikongo, and Lingala.

The Kizaba show offers a musically rich style reminiscent of the Congo and is a futuristic Afro journey “Fumu na betu”, for which he creates vocalizations inspired by his ancestors and mixes sounds of soukous-Congolese, Afrobeat and Pop rock. On stage, he uses his vocals, drums, and percussion by mixing electronic music and traditional sounds from the Congo to create an Afro-Futurist world.

To give the spectators a complete experience, visuals with 3D masks, designed by KIZABA and inspired by traditional masks from the Congo imagined in the future, are projected behind the musicians, creating a captivating atmosphere in another dimension.

On stage, he is accompanied by musicians (Congolese guitarist, rock rhythm guitarist and a DJ). Through its fascinating and electrifying Afro-electro Congolese electronic music, KIZABA offers a unifying show that will move the crowd!

“This drummer-singer is a perfect master of Afrobeat, house music, R’n’B and Congolese soukous. Here is his dazzling talent in a first afrohouse record of his own.”- Ariane Cipriani, Ici Musique Radio Canada.
