LAETITIA ZONZAMBE

From the Central African Republic, Laetitia Zonzambé forges an unique artistic path. Her music combines traditional songs from Bantu Africa with elements of Soul, Pop and Rythm 'n Blues. Laetitia’s songs reflect her personal background and story of growing up in an artistically cosmopolitan culture. Whether she sings in English, French, or Sango (her country's national language), Laetitia takes her audience through a vibrant journey of emotional ballads, transcending rhythms and sensitive melodies. Laetitia's music has taken her from East to West; she has played concerts in Chili, Central African Republic, the United States, British Colombia and France. Her new album, Sanza Soul came out on October 20th, 2017.
