Ngouma Lokito a.k.a. Shungu-Omba, Bass Guitarist
Where a perfect hybrid pattern of Congolese guitars is the bottom line,
one can sing his heart out to kingdom come, but there will be no Soukous. This is where Ngouma Lokito becomes crucial to the
unique sound. It goes back to tribal drumbeats eloquently expressed by Ngouma's bass guitar. Like priceless artwork that is
unrecognized by many, his signature bass line is highly valued by music enthusiasts. His magical fusion with Lokassa and Shiko's
guitars, led them to win Best Soukous Act at the Reggae & World Music Awards in New York on May 13, 2003.
