  • Vi seu show na semana passada, na TV BRASIL e, com toda a sinceridade do mundo, nunca havia ouvido nada igual! Maravilhoso, se bem que tal palavra não descreve bem o que achei de suas canções: é muito pouco!!! Parabéns pelo excelente trabalho e espero que seja bem feliz em sua estadia aqui no Rio de Janeiro!!! Grande abraço!!!

  • Saw this performer on a rainy weeknight in San Francisco. In a beautiful venue. Lokua Kanza, largely unknown at that time, came out to a crowd of only 48 people, and played his heart out to us. I sat nextto a burly Rastafarian, who had just returned from Africa, and was crying in happiness throughout the show. REMARKABLE - I am a lifetime fan.
