I’d like to introduce to you Lwela Kasulwe.
Lwela is a great musician from Rotterdam and originally from Congo. He’s a good bassist, guitarist and singer but tonight he’ll leave playing the bass to me.
Recently he’s been teaching me stuff about the Congolese styles of playing bass and I’m excited to play with him in Stella this Wednesday. The Congolese guitar/bass styles are very special and interesting to me because they’re completely different from what you know about guitar/bass lines in our western music and require much agility and a great feel for rhythm.
We’re going to play a couple of songs together, while he’ll also do a few songs on his own. We start at 21.30
Here’s some music:
