LovaLova's first album: KIZOBAZOBA
WHO IS LOVALOVA?
When he was a child, Wilfried Luzele was a rapper at the church in his neighborhood. Growing up, he became a "Japanese" sapper. After studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kinshasa, he decided to dedicate himself to his music under the pseudonym LovaLova.
For the past two years, he has made a place for himself in Kinshasa's urban music scene. He is experimenting a mixed style of music that borrows as much from rock and ragga as from traditional Congolese music. His songs written in Lingala, Kikongo and French depict with humor and intensity daily scenes of life in Kinshasa. Sometimes, his texts leave reality to fly to phantasmagorical and colorful worlds. In his first EP, LovaLova brings together three of these first songs « TamTam », « Liquefaction de l’homme » and « Lova ».
His music and his artistic universe have already been presented at the 2014 Yango Biennale, the Kinact Festival in 2015 and 2017, the "Kinshasa 2050: Digital City" exhibition in 2017, the Kinshasa Collection project in Kinshasa and Berlin in 2017.
LovaLova's band is currently composed of guitarist Kabe, bassist John and percussionist Ado. (PHOTO) For several months, the team is in a state of permanent creation and aims to bring together its last 12 creations within the album KIZOBAZOBA.
In lingala, the term kizobazoba refers to an assembly of several tissues, often used by Congolese women. For the artist, Kizobazoba embodies the complexity of this album with multiple musical influences. This is also the name of the song he made in 2017 for the credits of the Kinshasa Collection web series. KIZOBAZOBA is the name of this participatory album and also represents the assembly of each of your contributions to make it exist!
The group has already started work in the studio and plans to release the album for September 2018.
