As a prolific composer and guitarist from DR Congo (later Uganda, Kenya, Dubai and Japan) Siama performed with many of the greats and was a sought-after studio musician, recording hundreds of popular songs during the golden era of soukous music in the 70s-80s. His signature sound and commitment to innovation helped to fuel the popularization of soukous (aka “the sound of happiness”) which is ubiquitous on dance floors the world-over to this day.
Siama launched his solo career in 2014 from Minneapolis, MN-USA after being awarded a McKnight Fellowship and now that he’s running his own show, he’s developed an acoustic format, a lot of new material is flowing and he’s collaborating with musicians of a wide array of backgrounds and instrumentation.
Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door. Doors open at 7 p.m. with music starting at 7:30.
