Mingiedi Mawangu R.I.P.

Mingiedi Mawangu passed away last night (15/4), in Kinshasa. He was 85. He founded Konono No.1 in the 1960s and invented his own electrified likembe, which gave Konono No.1 its distinctive sound. He led the band and toured with them until a few years ago.
He will be dearly missed by his son Augustin and the rest of the band. The funeral will take place next week
