ABOUT ME

With one sensitivity and an overwhelming emotional power voice, Sheryl Gambo was revealed to the public, in 1996, by a memorable vocal performance at the Pan-African music Festival (FESPAM) where performed famous artists as Youssou Ndour, Salif Keita, Ismael Lô. Finalist of the French International Radio’s discovery price (2008’s edition), five times golden drum of Congolese music, she has released three albums including the last, O'kerah in 2016, tribute to his twins older (dead), refers to powers and the mystical attributed to the twins in Congolese tradition. Sheryl developed an eclectic and authentic style, NEW AFRO SOUL, completely against the grain of the current musical landscape. She explains that his style is restoration of natural bridges between the African cultural heritage with African-American, Caribbean diasporas, Latin and elsewhere. She pleasantly blends melodies from African traditions with Jazzy arrangements, Soul, RnB and HIP HOP, singing in congolese languages.

Water
In this song, water is a metaphor for the emotional connection between people which can bridge cultures and cross borders. It is also a basic universal human need that we share. Water is a critical natural resource, and in many countries, the lack of it affects predominantly women, who often have to carry it over extremely long distances with great effort. But collecting water also brings women closer together in their shared mission. Featuring the beautiful and powerful voice of Sheryl Gambo.
