Siama's Congo Music
Feel-good sounds from the Heart of Africa

When we listen to Siama's, "Land of Yangalele" we hear home, Mama Africa. This is very beautiful music that everyone can enjoy.”

— Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Back in Africa, Siama Matuzungidi (see-AHH-maw) became a soukous legend, recording his intricate guitar on hundreds or songs and touring the world with popular artists. Now in Minneapolis, his catchy, upbeat songs and musicianship have earned him a McKnight Fellowship and numerous grants and a Parents' Choice Parent Approved award. He loves performing special concerts and events and sharing his happy music with kids and their families. In addition to singing and guitar, Siama plays traditional African instruments like mbira (thumb piano) and balafon (marimba).

We dig it! A great addition to the family music mosaic! Outstanding rhythms and performances. ”
