Loc'd Beauty of the Week
Sally Nyolo used to be in the former group, Zap Mamma, a Belgium-based group of a-capella singers, led by the Belgian-Congolese Marie Daulne. Zap Mama was extremely successful during the 1990s. They led their vocals to many recordings, even Erykah Badu recorded with them. But before that, Sally Nyolo was active as backing vocal and singer on many records and concerts of Toure Kunda, Princess Erika and others.
After she left Zap Mama, her musical talents, both as singer and as composer, developed further. This enabled her to bring out several solo albums, largely drawing on the same musical sphere as Zap Mama, but increasing the use of traditional rhythms and instruments from the forest region of central Cameroon.
I love, love, love the way this Queen plays with her locs. Don't you enjoy the color she intertwines in them?
Stay Blessed & Happy Locing!
