Ray Lema

Ray Lema is one of the founding father of Central African’s music and a groove master. The Congolese pianist, guitarist, and composer, has a constant hunger for discovery. He published about twenty albums, all very different, however with a very specific musical signature. With its Afrobeat’s traditionnal rhythms, Ray Lema Quintet’s music is a magnificent return to jazz roots with a deep team spirit.
We are honored to be introduced to his new album “Headbug” in the Maison des Cultures du Monde Theatre. A show that will get you dancing ! “Headbug” is taking the French jazz outside of the box for a journey where energy meets poetry in the best of all possible worlds.
