whatever she's called, her job remains the same: to concern herself with the business of art so that the Artist can concentrate on making art.

 

 


  • ► Marie Daulne aka ZaP MaMa


    http://zapmama.com/

    known to her fans as Zap Mama, Marie Daulne redefines the term “vocalist.” who alternates between storytelling and organic creative expression utilizing the tonality of the human voice, a sonic stylist. since first bursting on the scene almost 20 years ago, the Belgian-Congolese diva has wowed audiences around the world with her unique sound, which seamlessly blends African, American, and European cultural influences and effortlessly mixes genres such as R&B, hip-hop, and jazz with indigenous and tribal sounds. Zap Mama’s seven album-deep catalog represents her mastery of what African Griots recognize as the 7th sense: the ability to heal through music. in addition to her musical endeavors, Marie Daulne has worked with humanitarian aid organizations Doctors Without Borders, Amnesty International, CARE and the United Nations. Zap Mama finished recordings for her 8th album 'Eclectic FLaSH vol .1'
