Mermans Mosengo has travelled throughout Africa and more recently throughout the Unites States with the internationally acclaimed “Playing for Change” group where he was a featured artist playing alongside the great Ziggy Marley.
His music is authentic with a strong reggae influence and is a firm favourite with trendy crowds. Mermans will perform at our Music Festival with the band Afro fiesta in Cape Town and after that he will travel to United States for live music recordings. Mermans Mosengo, together with his band Afro Fiesta, is a rising star and a renowned musician.
Jason has been playing guitar since age seven, when he made his own instrument out of wood and four strings. Teaching himself guitar for a decade, he began to study classical guitar at age 20, finally earning a degree in classical guitar. After playing at churches, local venues and in Papa Wemba’s traditional group Percussion Molokai, Jason decided to travel to South Africa and expose himself to more opportunities. It was there that he became a guitarist for the group Afro Fiesta.
