Guy Mapoko | "Pardon"

Album release
Guy Mapoko | "Pardon" | UbuntuFM

"Pardon" is the second release by Guy Mapoko. The 14 tracks on this album are an amalgamation of his West-African roots and the music of his second home, Canada.

Self-dubbed as ROCKAFRIKA, Guy explains his music as "Rock and Blues marinated in an African sauce, driven by percussion instruments such as water calabash, djembe, congas, cajun and talking drums; delivered in my mother tongue as well as in English and French. In other words, it is rock and blues with colors and flavors from Africa."

Born in Benin, English teacher by day and musician at night, the Montrealer, GUY MAPOKO is a good musician/arranger, author/composer, and singer of Rock, Pop, Blues, Reggae, Jazz, and Soul. He had the privilege to sing alongside with artists such as Birdy, Lionel Louèkè, (guitarist of Herbie Hancock), Nel Oliver, Isabelle Boulay, Eric Lapointe, just to name a few...

"Pardon" is performed by the excellent African and Canadian musicians of the great singer Céline Dion, recorded and mastered at Studio PICCOLO, one of the legendary recording studio in Montreal, and digitally distributed by THE ORCHARD ( SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT), for your pleasure...
