ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Officially released in 2013, "Retour aux Sources" (Back to My Roots) is an enchanting blend of jazz, soul, reggae and traditional African sensibilities delivered with a powerful, yet sensual voice, that breathes the genuine emotion of a sensitive heart. In 2012, the track "TALA NGA" from her album, then still in preparation, makes her the winner of an international radio contest, known as Couleurs Talent on Radio France Internationale (RFi). In 2013, Syssi Mananga wins a TAM-TAM d'OR (Congolese Music Award).

Syssi Mananga’s rich cultural background and nomad nature have allowed her to develop into a thoughtful and creative composer, singer and songwriter. The result is uniquely mesmerizing with a collection of smart, eclectic, bittersweet songs soulfully interpreted in five different languages (Lingala, French, English, Lari and Spanish).

**************************

Dans son album "Retour Aux Sources" sorti en 2013, Syssi Mananga apporte une touche bien personnelle à sa musique et crée un réel melting pot musical, enrichi par la collaboration avec les jeunes et talentueux musiciens congolais qui l’accompagnent. Le résultat est un mélange enchanteur aux couleurs du jazz, de la soul, du reggae et des rythmes traditionnels africains, délivré avec une voix puissante mais sensuelle, qui respire l'émotion véritable d'un cœur sensible. En 2012, le titre "TALA NGA", extrait de l'album alors toujours en preparation, la propulse gagnante de la 8eme édition du concours COULEURS TALENT sur RFi (Radio France Internationale). En 2013, Syssi est récompensée par un TAM-TAM d'OR (Victoires de la Musique Congolaise).
Le riche héritage culturel et la nature nomade de Syssi Mananga lui ont permis de devenir une auteur-compositeur-interprète réfléchie et créative. L'impact est unique en son genre avec une collection envoûtante de chansons sensées, éclectiques, douces-amères interprétées avec grâce en cinq langues différentes (le lingala, le français, l'anglais, le lari et l'espagnol).
