Don't miss the unique chance to see one of East Africa's leading and most legendary dance orchestras to play Geneva for the very first time: To celebrate their 40th birthday, Kenya's Orchestre Les Mangelepa has just embarked on the their debut European tour this summer!

With their subtle and laid back rumba styles featuring super sweet three-way harmony vocals, Mangelepa will take you back to an era in which Congolese rumba was the ruling the airwaves and charts of an entire continent.

Originally hailing from Eastern Congo, fate and the will to survive led the musicians on a winding odyssey from their home Lubumbashi via Zambia, Malawi and Tanzania to finally arrive in Nairobi, where they would become the rave of town, at times the most loved and now longest running dance band there. 

Les Mangelepa have released more than 13 albums and penned some of East Africa's most popular songs. Giants of their time, they kept fans busy producing hit after hit - their brilliant arrangements and superbly crafted tunes kept legions all over Africa shaking their hips to this unmistakable beat. 

And now it's your chance for romance with the incredible Les Mangelepa, right by the lake, at the beautiful Bains des Pâquis.
