Pierre Kwenders unveils a new music video for Sorry

Today, Pierre Kwenders releases a new music video for Sorry via OkayAfrica. The song is off his debut album Le Dernier Empereur Bantou, released last fall via Bonsound.

This lyric video draws a parallel between the beginning of his musical career and those of legends such as Tabu ley Rochereau, Franco Luambo Makiadi, TP OK Jazz and Sam Mangwana. Footage of these Congolese rumba pioneers were archived by simply filming a television screen. Pierre made sure to be a part of the whole creative process and teamed up with NOMAD to create this homage to the artists whose art greatly impacted African music.

He will be part of this year’s incredible Osheaga line-up on August 1st and will head to Europe in the fall. He is also working on a few shows in the United States.
