Pablo Lubadika Porthos

Real Name:
Pablo Lubadika Porthos
Porthos started his career as a guitarist with Orchestre Lovy Du Zaïre, and later Orchestre Kara De Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In pursuit of greater success he eventually moved on to Lomé, Togo and again to Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, where he was a member of L'African All Stars.

While a member of that group he ended up in Paris and quickly adapted the Soukous style of the Congos to the new recording techniques (and Kinshasa ex-pats) that were available in the city.
