RWANDESE SINGER, BENIWE!
Beniwe is from Rwanda, he left his country at the age of 17 and now resides in France.
His soothing and melhancolic music is a reminder of his culture, where people are reserved and modest they let their work speak for themselves..
I found something interesting abt him: he's Christian but he also believes in the the Rwandese "God" Imana..mm interesting.
His latest album is called "Isekere" I really enjoyed listening to that title, he has worked with Lokua Kanza, Menelik, Sonia Rolland,and in february played the first part of french singer Frederic Lerner a l'Olympia.
He's hungry for music and returns quite often to his land .He rarely speaks about the genocide in Rwanda but as a singer he def' brings awareness to this social crime.
The video for Isekere:
