Back in Africa, Congolese master musician Siama recorded hundreds of songs and toured the world with popular artists. Now based in Minneapolis, his joyful explorations into the traditional music, rumba and soukous of his homeland have earned him numerous awards and a special episode of TPT's Lowertown Live. Together with Dallas Johnson, his partner in music and life, he performs concerts and also hosts interactive programs especially for kids and families. Known for intricate guitar, spirited singing, catchy songs and traditional African instruments like balafon (marimba) and mbira, Siama's heart-warming performances are loved by audiences of all ages.
