#11) Zap Mama- It's electric
If you have ever had the chance to see a Zap Mama performance then you already know that the group is electrifying ! Zap Mama has a unique sound that can not be duplicated! The group's lead vocalist Marie Daulne, was was born in Isiro, and is a natural force to be reckoned with. Mother Nature on the move! Moving on the musical vibe that stems from her roots, Daulne hand picked back up vocalists who were equally as culturally mixed as she is. The group creates music that is a melodic fusion of African beats, rthymic soul, funky jazz, R&B and regeeaa. There is something for every listener on each of her 7 albums. Her latest, Recreation, came out in 2009 and features artist like Meshell Ndegeocello, Bilal and Vincent Cassel. Zap Mama music has recently been featured in Mission: Impossible II.
When not spreading love and and celebrating life through her lively music Daulne does her part in giving back to the world. She is actively involved in organizations that fight against world hunger and global poverty. Recently Zap Mama performed in a benefit concert in Brussels in response to the crisis in Haiti. She is committed in helping people of the world heal through her music and gracious deeds.
Zap Mama is a positive force in music today. Today when artist bare it all, it is nice to see performers clothed in self respect and majesty.
