Introducing Mermans from Playing For Change Band - Listen to his sound on nana!
April 27, 2018
This week, one of the Playing For Change Band musicians, Mermans Mosengo, sang along with the “Listen To The Music” instrumental track and posted his amazing track on nana! He sang the version without the chorus so why not collaborate with him🎤?!
Mermans is a percussionist, guitarist, and singer in Afro Fiesta, a band formed in South Africa with another Playing For Change Band musician, Jason Tamba. They both are from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and left their home country more than 15 years ago in search of a better life.
Mark Johnson, Co-Founder of Playing For Change and his team first met Mermans at a restaurant in Cape Town where Mermans was performing with his band. Their performance completely caught Mark and his team’s attention, so during the band’s set break they spoke with Mermans about PFC and were immediately in unison with him!
Anyways, that’s how they met and from that time till now, Mermans has performed in numerous PFC videos and live concerts all over the world with the Playing For Change Band. He even came to Japan last year to perform for the "Billboard Live Tokyo/Osaka 2017" with the Playing For Change Band!
