From a media release:
Batuki Music Society and Alliance Francaise Toronto present
A virtual concert featuring Blaise La Bamba & Kotakoli
November 7th 2020 at 8:00 PM
Enjoy the concert from home!
Kinshasa’s vibrant nightlife has long been world-famous. It is home to the subculture known informally as the Society of Ambiance-Makers and Elegant People (SAPEUR), which has spread its influence through artists such as Papa Wemba. Blaise La Bamba is part of this scene. He has worked with some of the top names of Congolese music, in particular General Defao.
In 2018, Blaise La Bamba founded Kotakoli, an all-star collective of musicians that perform an energetic mix of Congolese rumba and soukous. In the company of Kotakoli, this veteran musician brings Congolese popular music back to the forefront, with spellbinding dances.
