Born in Kinshasa, the capital of DR Congo, and now living in New York City, Nkumu Katalay and his music represent the blending of two worlds. For the past two decades, Isaac has worked as an ensemble musician, choreographer, dancer, and speaker. His style is a distinctive blend of contemporary and traditional Congolese dance moves and aesthetics, which he calls "CONTEMPTRA" (Contemporary-Traditional). Isaac is also founder of the Life Long Project which promotes Congolese music and culture in the U.S.
Nkumu Katalay and the Life Long Project will perform at the post-screening reception after the 7:00 screening of Félicité on October 20th
