Niasony - Pulsating groove from the Congo

Niasony came from Congo to Germany at the age of 13. Like many of her compatriots she is torn between a “functioning“ Europe and a homeland which is affected by poverty and violence – especially against females.

Niasony entrances her audience with an under the skin getting velvet voice and an unique balancing act of dance music and melancholy.

Her live show is authentic, pulsating, provoking and hypnotic.

So serious her issues (and her glance) are - her message is positive as her music: “Dancing in the rain is better than waiting for the sun!

Debut Album "AFROPLASTIQUE"

Niasony released the debut album AFROPLASTIQUEon Membran / Sony. in GSA 2014, the worldwide realease followed 2015.

With her Debut Album Niasony presents an astonishing sketch for the afro-international Pop music of the future. In the 13 songs she sings in Lingala - her mother tongue - to modern beat constructions of Dub, Downtempo, Funk, Afro-Soul or Soukous - and it sounds more like cool Club sounds than so called world music. Niasony is exciting in an universal way: Pop friends will love her strong melodies, Soul fans indulge in her grooves.

In 2015the Congolese diva tookher so called Afroplastique style together with Parisian Mastermind TOM FIRE directly onthe global dance floor. Tom Fire is well known in the world music scene through his cooperations with artists like MC Solaar, Lek Sen, McAnuff or Flavia Coelho. Enjoy this energetic and pulsating Remix of "Ezanani".

TheAYF(African Youth Foundation) nominated Niasony 2012 for “Social Activists“ and in 2013 for the Adler Award in the category “Media Entertainment“.
