Mermans Mosengo

Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo

Após sua chegada do Congo à África do Sul em 1998, Mermans juntou-se à Young Bakuba Band como baterista e baixista. Depois de um ano na banda, ele descobriu que sua independência e estilo musical estavam sendo limitados e então ele se mudou por conta própria como artista solo em 1999. Ele logo estava em alta demanda fazendo shows solo em vários locais da Cidade do Cabo, no entanto, ele decidiu que preferia uma formação de banda e montou o que agora é uma banda multicultural altamente conceituada, Afro Fiesta.

Como nos conhecemos:

Em nossa primeira noite na Cidade do Cabo, fomos jantar em um restaurante chamado Mama Africa, na Long Street, no centro da cidade. Ao longo de nossa refeição, ouvimos sons vibrantes de música africana vindo da outra sala e fomos seduzidos. Durante o intervalo do set da banda nos apresentamos e conversamos com Mermans, o líder da banda, sobre nosso projeto e ele imediatamente estava em uníssono conosco. Marcamos um horário para nos encontrarmos no dia seguinte para filmar e gravar suas músicas.
