A true musical gem rooted in the blues, mixing African traditions with striking modernity Muntu Valdo Progenitor of the amazing Sawablues, a new genre of music, Cameroon-born Muntu Valdo’s music is rooted in the blues, mixing African traditions with striking modernity and technical mastery to create mesmerising bluesy music with jazz and soulful beats.
He uses loop/sample technology to build up layers of sounds which supplement his guitar and harmonica. Muntu moved to the UK in 2008where his albums God & Devils and The One and the Many have received critical acclaim and he is now firmly established on the live scene as a soloartist. Sensitive guitar playing and dreamy, voice with distinctively textured, self-created loops and rhythms. The music has an airy, poetic feelthat’s a bit Brazilian, a bit Cape Verdean, while keeping a toe in the world of international busking folk.
