Luambo Franco Tribute with Faustin Linyekula & Jose Pereelanga

Luambo Franco Makiadi, simply known to many as Franco, was the founder of the group TPOK Jazz and is considered one of the originators of the modern Congolese sound. Over the course of 40 years, he produced more than 150 albums and 1000 songs. His style of music, a seamless blend of Cuban rumba and Congolese rhythms, can still be heard in popular music across the continent today.

Almost 30 years after his death, Faustin Linyekula, accompanied by guitarist Jose Pereelanga, will pay tribute to the Congolese master on PASS in Amsterdam on Tuesday 13 December.
