Belgian Pioneers with Denis Mpunga

Following the interview we ran in our November-December edition, composer, musician, vocalist and actor Denis Mpunga came through our studio armed with a selection of personal favourites and a wealth of anecdotes, from Music from Memory's initial reaction to his EP's artwork to how the release of his Criola EP has reawakened the recording musician in him. Features an absolute gem of an exclusive track, culled from Mpunga's Eko Kuango outfit which just got reissued by Libreville Records.
