DESIIRE is a Congolese, Queer singer-songwriter who delivers a unique blend of Afro, R&B, Electronic & Hip Hop to create music that is filled with hypnotic instrumentals and vocal moody simplicity. Influenced by soul contemporaries such as Erykah Badu, D'angelo, Lauyn Hill, Maxwell and pioneer African artists like Papa Wemba, Koffi Olomide, Youssou Ndour & Femi Kuti, DESIIRE has become known for his soul inpired vocals, afro infused, rap staccato cadences and engaging story-telling songwriting.
