A nice mix of music, African trend and western sounds
For his second single, the singer Dinastar Shango has put his expertise as a songwriter, serving a style of music: Afro Soul. Mix of funk, disco, tinged with blues and Congolese rumba. A lot of grace in this impulsive single, which contains beautiful sounds where the clear voice mixes with a music that warms the heart and delights the spirit, played by splendid musicians who share the same requirement for Afro Soul. A bold and ultimately seductive bet
