Alexander Upstairs Presents MAPUMBA LIVE AT ALEXANDER BAR

Originally from the DRC, Mapumba is a talented performing and recording artist who has released 6 albums over his 17 years in the music industry. He has toured internationally, sharing a stage with legends Salif Keita and Miriam Makeba and has performed for Nelson Mandela and Bill Clinton.

Singing in French, Swahili, Chiluba and English, Mapumba's versatility of soul and folk music to reggae, blues, and Afro-pop, combined with his infectious energy and stage presence, Mapumba's shows are an unforgettable kaleidoscope of experiences that linger long after the performance ends.

Mapumba's music dances with the past, sings with the present and plays with the future.

Mapumba is a multi-genre performing and recording artist who blends traditional melodies, stories and languages from his native DRC with original inspirations, delivering a rich African sound with a modern touch.

Mapumba's versatility to take listeners on a journey from soul and folk music to reggae, blues and Afro-pop, combined with his infectious energy and stage presence, make his shows an unforgettable kaleidoscope of experiences that linger long after the performance ends.

Best described as an African Tracy Chapman meets Salif Keita, Mapumba's music carries messages promoting peaceful, just and thriving communities, with lyrics that address issues ranging from xenophobia and gender violence to environmental sustainability and family affairs.
