Vera's Heartbeat invites you to dance to the famous Congolese soukous with AFRO ZAÏK

 

Afro Zaik means African + mosaic, referring to a blend of rhythms, and the word Soukous comes from the French word "secouer" (to shake).

 

This electrifying seven-piece band will shake your hips with African beats and world music infused with soukous, the heart of African dance music. The genre derived from African rumba in the late 1960’s and it became very popular all over Africa and France.

 

The band was formed by percussionist, choreographer, producer and DJ, AmazuluNanga (Zapmama), who joined forces with other great Congolese musicians now based in Los Angeles: Kamale, SheLA, Mermans, Loguylo, ELo, 8kilos, and -Z.

 

DJ Nice will complete the party with Hip-Hop, R&B, Trap and Afrobeat.

Come rock with us!
