The man behind the hit song "Mount Everest" Tresor performs in the Afternoon Express loft.
TRESOR (French for "treasure" and pronounced "Trezor"), born Mukengerwa Tresor Riziki is an award winning and multi platinum selling DRC born singer-songwriter signed to Universal Music Publishing Group and currently based in South Africa.
Tresor's first language is Music but he is also fluent in English, French and Swahili. His songs reflect a peregrine of life shared by so many on the continent of Africa, but few are able to express their experiences in a way that captures the ear so universally and directly.
Tresor's early childhood favorites, Bob Marley, Papa Wemba, Phil Collins, Lokua Kanza later expanded to include a new explosion of influences from Sting, Seal, Maroon 5, Asa, One Republic, Freshly Ground, U2, Bruno Mars and Coldplay. This is a new soul sound, moulded in Africa.
Not long after his journey south from the heart of Africa, Tresor was performing alongside Eddie Grant, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Freshly Ground, Prime Circle, Just Jinjer, Goldfish, Vusi Mahlasela, Lira, HHP and Johnny Clegg - to name a few.
