Jean Patient Akayezu, aka Nkuba
PERFORMEUR | MUSICIEN
Nkuba is a Rwandan musician and composer based in Kigali
Lulled throughout his childhood by his mother's inanga, a traditional zither found in the Great Lakes region, he trained in traditional Rwandan music at the Rwanda School of Creative Art and Music (RSAM).
Nkuba means "thunderbolt" in Kinyarwanda, as his music resonates, rumbles and touches us with its poetry and heritage.
