RIP: Augustin Mawangu Mingiedi, leader of Konono n°1

From Konono n°1:

Konono No.1’s proud and brave leader Augustin Mawangu Mingiedi has passed away yesterday.
He’d been ill for several months. We are devastated.

But Konono N°1 are indestructible, and we’ve been continuing to work and perform. After Mingiedi and Augustin, the torch of lead likembe player has now been passed to the 3rd generation, to Augustin’s son Makonda, who is fronting the band with original singer Menga Waku.
