Pegguy Tabu’s album “100Tabu” sets unique tone to modern Congolese music
Pegguy Tabu, singer, composer, producer, author and the son of legendary Congolese musician Tabu Ley Rochereau has finally put out his premier album release dubbed “100Tabu”.
Pegguy has been making waves around the African music scene with his unique style of music that is heavily borrowed from what we would call the ‘old’ form of rumba to the modern generation approach to music.
The album has a few tracks that are leaning towards electronic music, a touch of trap, r&b and Hip Hop. Pegguy has managed to concoct an incredible mix of sounds and tones that bring out an international appeal to his music.
The singer has also featured the likes of Koffi Olomide, the late Papa Wemba on some of his best compositions. He has not held back his efforts, on this album as an artist he is actually taking more of a front seat, stating his presence with his unique flair to boot. “100Tabu” is a fitting title since the project tells us more about him as an artist.
Pegguy describes himself as a self-made artist; he learnt to play the keyboard by himself some of the skills that have set him apart as a producer and composer. His talent has been sourced on projects such as Kayliah’s single “Belly Dance”, “Prêt Pour Le Combat” with Disiz La Peste, “Fidèle à Moi-Même” by Sté Strausz. His awards include; 4 golden record, a diamond record and 2 platinum records among others.
Pegguy and Abel who is his brother came together to form TabuWorld Music Group in 2010, which was a platform for them to produce and sign artists, they successfully ran a TV show dubbed Urban School which ran on Plug RTL.
The young artist popularly known as “Price Ley” was part of the Afrisa Internartional in 2012, an orchestra founded by his father in honour of the African music icon.
The album is available on ITunes and other legal music download platforms.
