Mike Munson & Siama Matuzungidi $5 says
Making his home in the Mississippi River town of Winona, Minnesota, Mike Munson is well known for playing slide guitar blues. The driving rhythms in his songs are reminiscent of the trains that barrel through his neighborhood. Munson makes regular appearances throughout the Midwest, and is currently working on his third release following a debut studio recording and the acclaimed “Live at Ed’s” releases in 2014.

“Munson’s too-good-to-be-true slide guitar and wry delivery give [these] cuts an irresistible swagger.” Hymies Vintage Records, Minneapolis

“The only complaint I ever have about his sets is that they come to an end. Mike (the man and musician) exudes quality.” Ed Hoffman, Owner of Ed’s(no name) Bar, Winona

As a prolific composer and guitarist from DR Congo (later Uganda, Kenya, Dubai and Japan) Siama performed with many of the greats and was a sought-after studio musician, recording over 100 popular songs during the golden era of soukous music in the 70s-80s. His signature sound and commitment to innovation helped to fuel the popularization of soukous (aka “the sound of happiness”) which is ubiquitous on dance floors the world-over to this day.

Siama launched his solo career in 2014 from Minneapolis, MN-USA after being awarded a McKnight Fellowship and now that he’s running his own show, he’s developed an acoustic format, a lot of new material is flowing and he’s collaborating with musicians of a wide array of backgrounds and instrumentation.

In addition to performing concerts, festivals, home concerts and special events, Siama hosts interactive programs and instrument petting zoos for children and lifelong learners and he teaches workshops on songwriting and guitar.
