Baloji

Style : hip-hop belge, soul, jazz
Pays : Belgique

Baloji is a jack of all trades! Artist, composer, poet, actor and stylist, he can do it all!

Born in Congo and living in Belgium, he is well known thanks to the rap group Starflam, hyper trendy in Belgium.

A real globetrotter, he went on to perform hundreds of concerts around the world after launching his solo career.

After many years touring the world to offer his sounds, he now honors black music with his poignant texts.

His latest album, "137 Avenue Kamiana", is probably the one that resembles him the most, definitely hip-hop with a mix of African, traditional and Afro-American music (soul, funk, jazz).

A nod to this street in Lubumbashi, DRC, where "The Sorcerer" (translation of his name) was born.
