Felix began his pro career with a group called Flash Musica, a kind of informal academy for rising Congolese stars. He was spotted by the legendary singer and bandleader Kofi Olomide, whose outfit featured some of the country’s leading virtuosos.

His musical education continued in the company of one of Congo’s greatest ever drummers, Dju Dju She (from the group Victoria Eleison). Felix re-located from Congo to Cameroon, absorbing new styles and techniques all the way, and finally settled in the UK. From here, he’s travelled across Europe, Asia and Australia in the company of some of his country’s top musicians including Kanda Bongo Man.

Now he’s resident in Liverpool, completed a degree in Popular Music and Production, and focussed on bringing his professional skills and passion for his craft to teaching and training.

Secrets Of Soukous Drumming

Time to switch from rock music’s classic beat to something contradictory. Time to break away from the verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-verse-chorus format and experiment with a wholly different structure where the vocal portion of the performance serves as preface to an extended dance section with contrasting demands of the drummer.

Felix leads you through the basic accents, rhythms and drumfills. He splits out every part, teaches you the techniques that attach to each, and then supports you as you pull them all together to create the authentic sound of the Congo.
