Kongo Super Band

 

Kongo is a guitarist, composer and music director who also performs vocals where appropriate. In addition, he is the director of Nio Records. His mission is to represent and celebrate the pinnacle of musicianship, bringing music with the highest skill level as well as creative and emotional content into the mainstream and making it the norm.  His music is based around forming "super-band" arrangements to perform "fusion concepts" which transcend the boundaries people often put on music by separating it into genres and classifying bands and artist within such boxes.

His current main concept, if it must be labeled for convenience, could be considered "Rock Fusion" and is a fusion band concept that combines elements of what is commonly perceived as rock, blues, jazz and funk music with Latin and world rhythms, along with occasional psychedelic vibes.
