Markscheider Kunst are a prime example of a truly multicultural band. Frontman Serafim Selenge Makangila hails from Zaire. He studied there to be a priest, then got expelled after a love affair, left for Ukraine in 1990 and found himself in St. Petersburg five years later. He is an authentic performer of Congolese soukous. His lyrics are in French, Swahili and Lingala. The band itself is also multinational: an Udmurt, a Tartar, a Russian…. The same goes for the music, which traces its roots among ska, reggae, funk, jazz and Latin rock flavoured with African influences and sprinkled with Russian folklore.
