Sing to emancipate the African woman. A unique encounter between the Bantu lullabies of the Congo, electronic music and hip-hop. A hybrid project which gives pride of place to dance and which highlights the daily life of Congolese women in a daring way and above all connected with the times.
Gladys Samba, renowned singer and percussionist, had for years wanted to revive and popularize the lullabies of the Republic of Congo, considered as a true cultural heritage of his region. For his part in France, the artist Rrobin has been exploring electronic music and hip-hop since 2013. In 2018, he produced the Déluge album in collaboration with distinguished guests such as Grems, Spoek Mathambo, Nancy Fortune and Hedi Yusef.
The Institut Français du Congo and the Coopérative de Mai, partners on the “Visa for Creation” project, then had the idea of getting Maman Glad ‘and Rrobin to meet in order to create an unprecedented blend of traditional sounds and current sounds. It was in the fall of 2019 that Rrobin decided to go to Brazzaville. The project then comes to life through the recording of the first models. The common desire to make an album and especially a tour becomes evident when listening to the titles.
