Her own one hour T.V. special followed, and a performance with the legendary Kris Kristofferson to an audience of 50,000 people got rave reviews and was broadcast on several occasions.

Music from the congo with The Lace
Ireland’s longest serving all-African band The Lace are about to set-out on their first tour of Ireland, which includes a visit to Cronin’s Pub!
Formed in 2003, The Lace are well known around Cork with their many appearances at events around the city such as Africa Day, Diversity Day and their frequent charity fundraising performances.
Playing a cocktail of well known songs from The Democratic Republic of Congo plus their own compositions (written in the back streets of Shandon) their concerts will usually start with some hip-swaying traditional Congolese Rumba, loaded with Cuban influences and made popular by legendary bands like Luambo Franco’s TPOK Jazz & Ochestre Matimilla, the signature sound of Kinshasa in the late 70s. Once the audience have warmed up, the band will turn the heat up further and after a few gear changes The Lace are in overdrive, playing the latest Kinois Soukous dance music. With fast, interweaving rhythmic guitars, harmonised vocals in French & Lingala and some sublime guitar solos The Lace will take the audience with them, without fail, for a true Congolese Soukous dance workout. Often involving guest singers and musicians, The Lace’s performances will always mean ‘its time to party’, push the limits, wave the arms in the air (as directed by lead singer/guitarist Daniel) and strut outrageously (as demonstrated by the guys out front).
