"Short, familiar poems, simple and elegant" was how his work was characterized when Congolese author Bolamba published his poetry collection Esanzo, Chants pour mon pays in 1955. In an Africa struggling to throw off the colonial yoke, it took courage to give voice to its culture. Pierre Kwenders, who transcends borders with his compositions in five languages, understands this. In 2015, he won ADISQ’s Music Video of the Year for Mardi gras, dubbed the perfect example of "quasi-experimental pop, testing the improbable – what’s never been done before" by Inrocks. The "never-before been done" – like Bolamba, you might say.
