A Tribute to Passi Jo

Thursday 24 November 2016

Jabula! & Warako Musica, Musiki Manjaro and Soukous Ba Congo come together to pay tribute to award-winning Congolese musician Passi Jo, a direct descendent of the Balari Troubadours who travelled from village to village singing about love, hate, death, friendship and all aspects of everyday life in Africa. Passi Jo embraced this musical legacy in his musical career across Africa, Europe and Australia.

Passi Jo was born in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo and moved to Paris in 1982 where he began a chain of successful international tours that introduced and endeared him to fans throughout Europe, North and South America, and Oceania, as well as continuing his popularity in his African homeland.

In 1990 he toured Australia with Tchico Tchicaya, and relocated permanently to Australia in 1993. Passi Jo's musical career spanned over three decades with more than 15 album releases and he formed Warako Musica in Melbourne in 1998.

A TRIBUTE TO PASSI JO
