When it comes to Congolese popular music, Nkumu Katalay can do it all—he's a dancer, singer, drummer, percussionist, guitarist, bassist, and bandleader. Born in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nkumu is a veteran of Lokassa Ya Mbongo's Soukous Stars, but has become a fixture in New York City, especially in Harlem. In addition to leading The Life-Long Project Band, Nkumu is a co-director of the Yam Session, a monthly collective Afro jam session, and teaches weekly high-energy Afro-Congolese dance classes.
