Titos Sompa, master musician, singer, dancer, and roots man brings Congolese song and dance to Golden Drum.
Titos Sompa is the Founder and Artistic Director of Mbongi Dance Theater Project. Originating from the Congo (Brazzaville), Titos is a charismatic and extraordinarily gifted performing artist, teacher, and healer. Since arriving in America from Paris, where he taught music and dance and toured Europe with his band, Les Echos Noir, he has inspired artists, students, and audiences with his African cultural orientation that holistically integrated music, dance, singing, folklore and spirituality. Mr. Sompa was the first to introduce the earthly and fluid Congolese style of simultaneous dancing and singing to America audiences.
