Emmanuel Nsingani
Emmanuel Nsingani​ is a musician of extraordinary talent. A
versatile performer, Emmanuel’s effortless and evocative voice is
supported by his virtuosity and fluidity on bass and guitar. He has served
as producer, arranger, and composer on many recordings, and has been
involved in countless music projects, including musical director of the
gospel choir Living Water. He has shared both stage and studio with
accomplished musicians such as Adamu Da Silva, Andy Alonso, Steve
Rudolph, Daniel Mendez, Syssi Mananga, Freddy Massamba, and
Arnoldo Prete, to name a few.
Originally from Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, Nsingani fell in love
with the bass guitar at an early age, and has been playing music all of 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, and 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
Emmanuel's original songs are often fueled by the 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. Yet his optimistic lyrics always include messages of faith, hope
and love, and celebrate the resiliency of the human heart. Dedicated to
creating and performing music that builds bridges, connecting all people,
Emmanuel Nsingani is bringing his exuberance, ambition, and raw talent
to the United States, where he currently lives.
