Mizila

“I would like with these short pieces, offer landscapes to everyone, that in the privacy of the heart, could sing the words of a new universal dream in which Africa would fit harmoniously “. Ray Lema

“There are some musicians we should never loose sight. At almost 60 years, the Zairean musician Ray Lema, has just released a new album, “Mizila”, full of grace and subtlety, which both mixes jazz, classical and african sensibilities, focusing on the exclusive use of the piano. Searching now for twenty years new musical horizons, Ray Lema plays with sobriety, away from the reggae-funk-rock of the begining of his career. Here the music takes off, there , the notes of the piano transport you between the universe of the dreams and the unconscious. Introspective, rich and warm, Ray Lema has signed one of his most inspired records.”
