The Franco-Congolese duo Kolinga is back with "Nguya na ngai" (Music Video)
The Franco-Congolese duo Kolinga are back with a nice track in Lingala, a song to sing about love and women... Well, when you put it that way you don't stand out from 85% of the music production which is a bit too severely burnt out, not to say completely macho! But not on "Nguya na ngai", since that's the title of this new song, Kolinga, led by the voice of its singer Rebecca M'Boungou, gently sings an ode to female empowerment and love. Now that's better phrased!
And to accompany the dance of the guitars and flutes, the flights of song, and the punctuations of the flugabone, what better than dance, that of bodies and souls. In a very beautiful visual and above all a very beautiful choreography orchestrated by masterly pointe shoes, those of Raphaëlle Renucci, Kolinga puts into movement bodies, those of 5 dancers, who take control of the video, and flower by their gestures the immense disused warehouse where they perform.
But beyond the dance, beyond the music, this new title, " Nguya na ngai ", is an opportunity for Kolinga and her singer to give back to oppressed women all over the world, but more particularly in Congo, where, despite the terrible violence, rapes and wars, they continue to carry the stability of society as best they can.
