CHRISTIAN KONGAWI – CANADA150

*Please BYOP* You are looking for a black bison tube

A Saskatchewan resident who was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Christian Kongawi is a percussionist and a humanitarian worker who is very engaged in the country of his birth.

The artist has worked on projects with many other Saskatchewan musicians, including the Fransaskois Alexis Normand and the group The Rebellion. In 2013, he received the prestigious Evans Drumhead scholarship which allowed him to work on improving his art. He then studied drumming in Hollywood.

In addition to his work as a musician, Christian Kongawi has dedicated himself to another project dear to his heart: education in his native Congo. He has carried out many fundraising activities in Saskatchewan to build and renovate schools in Congo. The lack of educational opportunities was one of the reasons he moved to Canada and he wants to provide a better life for those who do not have such an opportunity.


*S'il vous plaît, apportez votre crayon* Vous cherchez un petit tube noir

Saskatchewanais né en République démocratique du Congo, Christian Kongawi est à la fois un musicien percussionniste et travailleur humanitaire très engagé dans son pays natal.

L’artiste a travaillé sur des projets avec de nombreux autres musiciens de la Saskatchewan et d’ailleurs, comme la fransaskoise Alexis Normand et le groupe The Rebellion. En 2013 il a remporté la prestigieuse bourse Evans Drumhead qui lui a permis de perfectionner son art. Il a étudié la batterie à Hollywood par la suite.

Outre son travail de musicien, Christian Kongawi s’est aussi consacré à un autre projet qui lui tenait à cœur : l’éducation dans son Congo natal. Il a réalisé de nombreuses levées de fonds en Saskatchewan afin de bâtir où rénover des écoles au Congo. Son déménagement au Canada était en partie due au manque d’éducation et il souhaite offrir un meilleur avenir à ceux qui n’ont pas cette chance.
