He is one of Central Africa's greatest R&B stars – some even call him Africa's Craig David. And Fally Ipupa does have a huge potential in the West with his inspiring pop music.

At the same time, it is always clear with this award-winning artist that we are not in the US on the seat of a glittering sports car. There are plenty of African scents in Ipupa's skilfully composed music, drawing on especially the Congolese rumba soukous that always takes care of the fat combustion with both the audience and the large orchestra that the Congolese like to bring.

Fally Ipupa shows how Africa maybe one day can appear on equal footing with the West on the international charts. Here is an abundance of musical talent – also of well-written R&B.

Band schedule is ready in May

Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.

We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
