Congolese guitar. Sebene rhythms. Kizaba perfectly integrates Congolese traditions with a modern and assertive afrobeat. Ambassador of Afro futurism, Kizaba offers us Ingratitude, his new ultra danceable and energetic single featuring Luciane Dom, where the artist starts as usual from a very banal situation to pass a universal message. Ingratitude is no!



Lionel Kizaba met Luciane Dom in Brazil, in Rio de Janeiro during his tour with the artist Vox Sambou. The current passes immediately between the two artists and their love for the afrobeat and the afro-futurist creations of the one and the other push them to remain in contact.

After an international tour that took him from England to the USA via France, Kizaba returned to work in Quebec and wrote with Luciane this colorful song that speaks of a banal situation, to finally invite the public to a deeper reflection on mutual aid, recognition and friendship.

Ingratitude takes up the codes of afrobeat but this time, Lionel adds to it the suave and soulful voice of Luciane which underlines wonderfully the multicultural environment in which Lionel evolves.

The clip was made in New York in the summer of 2022.









Kizaba is an Afro-Electro Congolese singer based in Montreal, Canada. Singing in Lingala, French and Kikongo, he seeks to infuse contemporary afrobeats, electro, house and music with melodies and rhythms from Congolese traditions, creating a unique Afro-futuristic universe inspired by the stylistic tradition of “Sapologie”. The Kizaba live show presents personalized images produced in partnership with Congolese visual artists. 

On stage, he is accompanied by musicians (a Congolese guitarist, a rock rhythm guitarist and a DJ). Through its fascinating Afro-electro Congolese music, KIZABA offers a unifying show that will move any crowd! Kizaba has performed his show in major world renowned festivals across Canada, USA, Europe and Africa.
