Album release"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."
