Video Premiere: RiZA – Kabembe

Led by guitarist Niwel Tsumbu and featuring members of Loah, Ensemble Ériu, Manden Express and Feather, RiZA have released their debut video for the track ‘Kabembe’. Taken from their upcoming debut album, the lyrics are in the native Lingala tongue of Congo and are based on Tsumbu’s own devastating real life experience last year, when he found out that his 14 year old son was not in fact biologically connected to him. Quite how this turned into such a joyous musical expression is incredible but that’s what has definitely emerged. See the band at Africa Day on May 24th.
