MY MUSIC JOURNEY
I was born in the north of Zambia with music and rytm flowing in my blood. Already as a little kid I started to play instruments and sing.
I was eight years old the first time I preformed. My father used to travel around in Zambia to organize openings of new schools, mostly at different mission stations, and one time there was this church gathering where they needed someone to play.
In highshcool I got chosen to be on national TV in a talent show. From this show I started touring in Zambia and built up a dedicated fan-base.
SOUTH AFRICA – AN UNFORGETTABLE ADVENTURE
I’ve always been curious to go and see the world and therefore I went on a tour to South Africa and I really fell in love with that country so I ended up living there for more than 15 years. There I continued to preform at different clubs, festivals and even at FIFA WORLDCUP. I also released my first full length album “I’m just colorless” where I tell the deep story of my strong fight ageist racism and inequality in the society.
SWEDEN – A NEW CHAPTER
Now I’m staying in Sweden, a country far up in the north of the world, and here I’m developing a new style of guitar-playing .
