  • Mulele Matondo Afrika, Kinshasa-born gutar and bass god,  started playing music at an early age, later establishing himself in Zimbabwe as a successful bassist, guitarist and arranger with a stunning take on his home-grown Congolese style, before becoming one of London's  leading band leaders and in demand musical collaborators .
