Placide Jr, leader of Bakolo Génération International.


He has been interested in music from an early age. As a baritone-bass singer, his vocal influences are N'Yoka Longo (whom he considers the main musical influence) and Marie-Paul Kambulu. He founded his group Bakolo Génération, accompanied by young Congolese in Madrid. He identifies the style of his group as a mix of renowned orchestras, including Zaïko Langa Langa, Wenge Musica, Big Stars and Quartier Latin.


Along with many young people from Madrid, he was awarded in May 2021 "Gran Cruz de la Orden del 2 de Mayo".
