Prince Zeka & Dunia Moja Band Short Info

Prince Zeka
singer, composer, entertainer
born in Bukavu, Dem. Rep. Kongo (Ex-Zaïre), lives in Vienna

Prince Zeka calls his music "makoul":
This style of music blends soul, hip hop and soukous into a new, exciting mixture. His warm voice, which embraces tongue-twisting rap and emotional soul with equal versatility, gives his music its unique range of tonal colour.

What is so special about this music is its huge range of multi-layered tones and rhythms: he melts together melodious soul with the rhythmic elements of hip hop and afro-beat, he sings and raps in French, Swahili, English or Lingala and the influence of soukous - the music of his homeland Zaїre - can be clearly heard.

His song texts deal with the everyday as well as current political matters. With his music he transports the messages of equality and respect which actually means an attitude to life that is suffused with the vision of a new and positive culture of freedom and solidarity.

Prince Zeka´s music alters listening habits and perhaps thus also preconcieved opinions about "african music" and cultural identity being things that are unalterable. He attempts to escape the rigid framework of traditional attributes: with a delightful lack of respect he disregards existing musical boundaries in that he creates out of his own lived reality as a modern nomad and allows himself to be inspired by a myriad of cultures.

This attitude is reflected in both the name and members of his band DUNIA MOJA. DUNIA MOJA is Swahili and means "One World". The male and female musicians of his band come from various parts of the world and combine their varying talents and experiences into the music "makoul".
