Diana la Fraise

What is your artistic background?

I started as a self-taught musician. As a child, I sang at churches and in gospel groups. Then, afterwards, I started to evolve as a singer-performer in clubs. There I interpreted Congolese rumba classics and the repertoires of great African female singers. Now I can finally start my solo career.


How do you view your profession today?

Through music and singing, I can express myself and pass on to others all that I have experienced and learned. This is my passion.


Where do you see yourself in five years? In 10 years?

In five or 10 years, I see myself making music history and being among the best female African voices of my generation. I would like to be able to go on tour and make albums that have an impact.
