We are honored to invite you to a very special tribute night for one of Africa’s greatest singers, the mighty Remmy Ongala who sadly passed away on 13th December 2010.

 

“He was a superstar in East Africa, and in the 1980s and 1990s he reached European and American audiences with albums for Real World, a label founded by Peter Gabriel, and international tours that included many appearances at Mr. Gabriel’s Womad (World of Music and Dance) festivals.” - New York Times, January 18, 2011.

 

To celebrate Remmy’s music and life we have invited the original members of his band Orchestra Super Matimila, lead by Kawele (Africa Jambo) and featuring soukous superstars Saidi Kanda, Fiston Lusambo, Rama Kayimanda, Billy Mwangura, and Malinga, Kiniki, Rissa Rissa, Eugene Makuta, and Claudia Bakisa.
