Nsingani has been playing music all his life, immersing himself in the world of jazz, gospel and, of course, Congolese rumba/soukous. Emmanuel’s eclectic vocal style features songs in French, English, Lingala and Lari. His music combines a strong flavor of traditional folkloric Congolese, with elements of jazz, rock, pop, Latin, R&B, and world music, creating a distinct, modern sound.
Nsingani’s songs are fueled by social and humanitarian concerns that are serious issues in central Africa, by a strong love of his homeland, and by his honest convictions about human rights. His optimistic lyrics include messages of faith, hope, and love—a celebration of the resiliency of the human heart.
