Ngoma Za Kongo

The name of the show is:               TIYA

Ngoma Za Kongo, meaning drums of the Kongo, is collaborative project with RUMBAFRICA composed of several artists in continuous research of new sounds and expressions inspired by Congolese traditions. As a result of this research, the group presentation known as TIYA represents a diversity of sounds and colors from different regions of the Congo. The work is an original fusion of traditional rhythms, ritual dances, and the influence of a contemporary environment.

The artists of Ngoma Za Kongo dance, sing, and play various sounds of the African drums. Their explosion onto the stage drives you into the essence of their mythical rhythms, leaving you between a traditional and modern world. Enriched by the songs and sounds of the African drums, these rhythms and dances make Ngoma Za Kongo an outstanding group beyond the usual. Coming from different ethnic backgrounds, the members of Ngoma Za Kongo also naturally contribute to the diversity of this group
