Ray Lema is a widely-revered composer, pianist and guitarist. His life in music has taken him from Kinshasa-Washington DC-Paris, moving from Gérard Kazembe’s orchestra to playing with Franco, Tabu Ley Rochereau and Joseph Kabassele, as well as leading a variety of his own bands. In recent years, Lema has referenced Herbie Hancock in his album V.N.S.P. (Very Special New Production), and performed a tribute to Aimé Césaire with his Nzimbu project.
Ray Lema will join us at the PASS Pop-UP in Paris (Sept 17-19) at Fondation Cartier.
