Héritier Watanabe

Since the early age of 10, Congolese dancer/singer/songwriter, Héritier Watanabe has been singing and electrifying audiences with his mix of Congolese Ndombolo, soukous and rumba music. Captivating and charismatic, Watanabe’s high energy dance music is backed by a full band of singers, dancers, percussionists, guitarist, bassist and keyboard player. Originally from Kinshasa Democratic Republic of the Congo, Watanabe first rose to prominence as a member of Wenge Musica Maison Mère, leaving the group to release his first single in 2016. Since then, Watanabe — recognized as one of the world’s most prominent and popular Congolese singers of his day — has been performing at venues and festivals around the globe.
