Join us for a musical sunset cruise. Originally from Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, Emmanuel Nsingani has been playing music all of his life: jazz, gospel and, of course, Congolese rumba/soukous, as well as other styles. Emmanuel’s eclectic vocal style features songs in French, English, Lingala and Lari. His music combines a strong flavor of traditional folkloric Congolese, with elements of jazz, rock, pop, Latin, R&B, and world music, creating a distinct, modern sound.

Emmanuel was one of the performers at the 2018 Susquehanna Folk Festival!
