Congo-born, Belgium raised Marie Daulne, known to her fans as Zap Mama, redefines the word “vocalist.” She creatively expresses her sound and storytelling with tone and pure voice.


In the early 1990s, Daulne founded the female vocal quintet Zap Mama, which became a sensation in Europe. Since then, the group has toured internationally and evolved into various configurations combining musical elements from three continents.


From Afro-beat to Afro-pop, Zap Mama mixes African vocal technique with polyphony and American sound to create an explosion of international flare.
