Bio

Nicolas Dacunha, a native of the Parisian suburbs, and Faty Sy Savanet, born in Kinshasa, grew up in Lemba, a trendy district of the Congolese capital. After spending nine years in the suburbs of Paris, they revealed themselves as 'Tshegue', playing a combo of tribal, garage rock. The name has double meaning: it is the nickname of the singer, and also the name given to the little boys in the streets of Kinshasa. His raucous and soulful voice gives the music a rough atmosphere, boosted by epileptic rhythms, intense phrasing and a tribal vibe.
