A nice mix of music, African trend and Western sounds
For his second single, singer Dinastar Shango has brought in his expertise as a songwriter and uses a musical style: Afro Soul. Mix of funk, disco, blues and Congolese rumba. A lot of grace in this impulsive single that contains beautiful sounds, where the clear voice mixes with a music that warms the heart and pleases the mind, played by great musicians who have the same preconditions for Afro Soul. A brave and ultimately seductive bet
