Every day is Africa Day- Angola

23 May

I am a proud Pan Africanist and my three passions are Women, Africa, and the arts. I have decided​d to write up a number of blogs dedicated​ to Africans, who are doing great work.
It is great that we have a specific day dedicated​ to Africa but we need to instill the ideology that Africa runs through our veins, minds, ​and hearts. We need to push this ideology​​ into the conversations we have with our family, colleagues and what we say online. We need to look at the curriculum that is taught​ in our school ​​so that our children are no longer misguided on our past traditions, history, ​and culture.

To start off this series, we go to Angola.

Serpião Tomás an artist named “Toto ST”, was born in Luanda.
He grew up in a religious family and had contact with gospel music since his mother and aunts belonged to the choral group of the church. At the age of eight, he wrote his first lyrics for a song and began chanting Angolan, Brazilian, North American melodies and other African roots.
The music, a genetic inheritance so well-known in the culture of the Angolan people, is its natural environment and the name he adopted – Toto ST – a reference inescapable in Angola and a bit throughout the African continent. Every single song by Toto ST takes you on an authentic journey to the great diversity of the seductive Angolan landscape and to the deepest roots of the “music of the world”. His music is a unique fusion between Afro Jazz, Funk, Blues, Soul, R & B and Kilapanga.

Singer, composer, guitarist and music producer, Toto ST began his career at the age of 14, participating in works by renowned artists of the Angolan music scene, such as Kalibrados, Genesis and Yannick AfroMan, among others. His music and his very own way of composing are reflected in the songs created for artists such as Pérola, Yola Araújo, Selda and Sandra Cordeiro.

He will be traveling​ to South Africa soon, for more​ information on his work, contact his manager:
