Les Mamans du Congo x Rrobin

Congo/France

Led by the charismatic singer and percussionist Gladys Samba – and here live-meeting DJtronica Rrobin -, the female group Les Mamans du Congo was formed in 2018 in Brazzaville. In a project where dance merges with ancestral Kongo lullabies, the five mothers sing in the Lari language, telling the history of their people and the daily life of Congolese women. They set these narratives to music with complex rhythms played using forks, plates, pestles, and other improvised instruments.
