Lokassa Ya Mbongo Kassiya

 

RHYTHM GUITARIST

 
Soukous Stars is an all-star line up of Congolese musicians with hundreds of recordings between them by different bands. Lokassa is one of the few rhythm guitarists that have made it to his status of fame and success. That esteem is usually put upon the flashier lead guitarists. He is a veteran member and co-founder of the band who catapulted it to stardom with his Megamix Soukous albums by appealing to party favorites throughout Africa and those around the world who could not speak Congolese lingala, albeit mesmerized by his guitar theatrics.
