Events with Fiston

London based Fiston Lusambo is a virtuoso guitarist, famous for his fluid style blending choppy rhythm playing with sinuous lead lines. He first came into the spotlight in Orchestra Virunga, the group formed around seminal Congolese artist Samba Mapangala.

He is bandleader of Zong Zing All Stars, leading exponents of 'cavacha' - the uplifting dance rhtyhm at the core of central African music, which gave rise to 'soukous' in Congo, 'makosa' in Cameroon, and 'coupez decallez' in Côte d'Ivoire.
