About

Born into a family of musicians in Congo (DRC), Africa, WeeLye has become a very talented Singer /Composer of Afro/Pop Songs with a Soul Acoustic touch. She discovered the joy of music by listening to her Aunt sings in the famous Congolese Rumba Band « OK JAZZ ». But it will be many years before she decides to make her voice heard. She has ensuring among others the gig's openings of Erykah Badu or sharing the stage with artists such Keziah Jones. Singing in French, English and Lingala (congolese dialect), her mixed music is a real discovery. WeeLye has brilliantly combined her Congolese Rumba Roots with the news vibes of American Soul mixing Latin and African Rumba beats with Folk-Pop melodies and a touch of Jazz. An authentic talent and a voice full of strength and nuances, not to be missed.
