about

This compilation album was made to honour and promote the cultural enhancement of our Western Europeon society brought to us in Brussels by talented and driven musicians, we want to draw the attention to the status that refugees have been reduced to in our countries.

Diginity is not a luxury.

The artists on this album were introduced to us by Els Rochette and Olivier Debehogne from Globe Aroma and by Rudi De Bleser from the Open Refugee Centre in Kapellen.

Globe Aroma is an urban non-profit organisation that strives to promote the cultural riches of refugees, asylum seekers and newcomers.
The organisation offers to help artists who fled their country of origin, to create and develop their art and to promote it to a broad audience. Through it's multidiscipinary nature, Globe Aroma stimulated collaborations and creations that transcend artforms. Excganges between communities generate an intercultural dialogue through art. www.globearome.be

An invitation to party
Rather than relying on the stereotypes of Congolese music, Kinch searched for a style of his own. He mixes traditional rhythms from central Congo with elements from blues and jazz and calls it Kibuyu. His songs often talk about violence, hope and freedom. They're a call for tolerance.

SAMSON & SAMSUEL
