His musical style is multiple, mainly rock, sometimes punk and often inspired by traditional Congolese music. He sings in Lingala, Kikongo and French. His texts describe Kinshasa&#39;s urban life with humour and intensity. Sometimes his words leave the real world to fly into phantasmagorical universes and delirious landscapes.&nbsp;</p> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FoPZdyWjxMy4%3Ffeature%3Doembed&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DoPZdyWjxMy4&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FoPZdyWjxMy4%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="500"></iframe></div> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer">&nbsp;</div> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"> <p>In 2017, he produced the soundtrack for the web series &quot;Kinshasa Collection&quot; and participated in a hybrid show in Berlin (Germany) as part of the same project.
