Born under the sun of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Naxx discovers her passion for music at the age of 9 and dreams of making a career out of it. She pursues this dream by joining several choirs of different styles: gospel, traditional, classical, folk in Congo and then in Belgium.
She crosses the Atlantic as a teenager and settles first in Belgium, then in Quebec in 2008, always with the firm intention to continue to express her immense creative talent.
Naxx is an author, composer and performer, greatly influenced by classical music but also by the popular music of her childhood, notably Mutuashi, and Congolese Rumba. Through her compositions, she shows her passion and commitment to create around the different rhythms encountered in Africa.
Thanks to her artistic generosity, her extraordinary energy, her passion for singing, but especially her very personal sound, she performs on several local and international stages. Committed but very festive, she pursues her inspiration in her high quality “Mutuashi-Rumba-Sebene” style.
In the spring of 2018, she participated in the series “Rythmes au féminin” of the Productions Nuits d’Afrique. In 2020, she offers a series of four live concerts paying tribute to Central Africa, including a colorful recording made at Club Balattou as part of the special edition of the International Festival Nuits d’Afrique.
Now having reached a certain artistic maturity, Naxx is embarking on the production of her first album Kuetu, “chez nous” in Tshiluba, whose worldwide digital release is scheduled for June 2022 under the label Disques Nuits d’Afrique. This project, mixing rhythms of the Congo and refreshing Afropop, evokes deep subjects: racism, living together, but also experiences and stages of life, happy or not, that make us grow.
A cross between Miriam Makeba and Whitney Houston, Naxx Bitota always finds a way to bring together and pay tribute to the different regions of Africa. An unwavering commitment that is powerfully present throughout her career.
