Artist feature 2012:
  • Yvonne Ngalula (Canada)
    YVONNE Ngalula was born in Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Since her childhood she has loved music and regularly participated in different musical activities at her school as both a singer and a songwriter. In Brazzaville, the capital of Congo (neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo) Yvonne had the opportunity to participate in a contest for young singers where she received acclaim, even though she was not among the finalists. This did not discourage Yvonne from making a music career on her own. Yvonne Ngalula evolved as an artist in the group “MAIWAN STARS”, and she also accompanied Marie Misamu as a singer. These days, Yvonne Ngalula has launched her first album under the title: “BILA YESU” which is the result of the inspiration of her own personal testimony and songs in the style of Congolese Rumba. Before settling in the city of Montreal, Yvonne performed many shows in countries like Congo Brazzaville and Gabon. For more information visit http://www.yvonnengalula.com
