KONGO

中文: 石義山

日文: 金剛力士

Kongo is a guitarist, vocalist and composer. He has performed professionally in Hong Kong for over a decade and is unique there as a fusion musician with the ability to cross over into many genres. Kongo has performed with the best musicians in Hong Kong in various roles and situations, sometimes as band-leader and sometimes as hired musician.

His mission is to assemble a band of world-class musicians to perform his music and bring high levels of skill, musicianship, creativity and emotional content into the mainstream and make them the norm, both in Asia and internationally. His intention is to push and break boundaries, exposing people on a wider scale to kinds of music that would not typically make it onto the mainstream radar whilst creating something new and unique in the process. He intends to do this by packaging and arranging the music in a digestible format, suitable for a wider audience, without compromising musical integrity.
