About the event
Live music on the main stage!
Congolese musician Emmanuel Nsingani is a singer, songwriter, and
multi-instrumentalist. Best known for his jazz bass playing, Nsingani has
been playing music all his life, immersing himself in the world of jazz,
gospel and, of course, Congolese rumba/soukous. His eclectic vocal style
features songs in French, English, Lingala and Lari. His music combines a
strong flavor of traditional folkloric Congolese with elements of jazz, rock,
pop, Latin, R&B, and world music, creating a distinct, modern sound.
Nsingani’s songs are fueled by social and humanitarian concerns that are
serious issues in central Africa, by a strong love of his homeland, and by
his honest convictions about human rights. His optimistic lyrics include
messages of faith, hope, and love—a celebration of the resiliency of the
human heart. Emmanuel is dedicated to creating and performing music that
builds bridges and connects people to share love and peace in music.
Although Raleigh, NC was his first American “home”, Nsingani now lives in
Harrisburg, PA, touring and performing with musicians he has met and
collaborated with since moving to the U.S.
He will be joined by guitarist Jean Marc Banzouzi.
