On Thursday, September 26 MATATU presents activist/musician Zap Mama in conversation with Raoul Peck’s Patrice Lumumba: la mort du Prophete. The program (Sentiment III of MATATU19) is the result of a six month collaboration with the artist, where she engages in a public conversation with musical interludes prompted by Patrice Lumumba and his legacy. Visit matatu.co for more info on the MATATU19 sentiments.

ZAP MAMA

Known to her fans as Zap Mama, Marie Daulne redefines the term “vocalist.” She is more than just a singer — she alternates between storytelling and organic creative expression utilizing the tonality of the human voice. Since first bursting on the scene almost 20 years ago, the Belgian-Congolese diva has wowed audiences around the world with her unique sound, which seamlessly blends African, American, and European cultural influences and effortlessly mixes genres such as R&B, hip-hop, and jazz with indigenous and tribal sounds. Zap Mama’s seven album-deep catalog represents her mastery of what African griots recognize as the seventh sense: the ability to heal through music. In addition to her musical endeavors, Daule has worked with humanitarian aid organizations Doctors Without Borders, Amnesty International, CARE and the United Nations.
