Tonton Lusambo – born Maurice – fell in love with music at a very young age under the influence of his father, a pianist. He eventually put music aside for a couple of years, focusing on other occupations like sport, commerce and, above all, travelling. But music was never really forgotten.
Back in Congo he decided to pursue a career as musician and, in order to explain his philosophy, released his first album. His aim is making people less cynical and more moral. Tonton Lusambo then toured piano bars across Central Africa, participated in various festivals and contests.
He collaborates with various artists and makes good use of the many influences that he gathered while travelling, fusing them into his own style.
