Soeur Madeleine Mbiya

Soeur Madeleine Mbiya and her band. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2013 v7n1 p0805

Daughter of Congo, Soeur Madeleine, is based in South Africa, in Johannesburg, where she sings and is backed by other singers and a band, and you can hear the band play in these videos.

The band is mostly the 10 children of a son and daughter of Congo: he is an engineer who had a long career working with Chevron in Congo, she is a teacher.

In South Africa they are refugees, forced to pay every 3 months for the possibility of living in South Africa for another 3 months. Madame has to take all 10 children, including a married daughter with a baby, every 3 months for the trek from Johannesburg to Pretoria, to wait for hours and hours and hours for a clerk to look up from playing computer games and process their visas. And frequently, do it all again the next day. Until Madame and all 10 children and 1 baby grandchild has their visas.
The cost of transplantation is a hardship, in a country that will not let them work - anyone with a 3-month living and working permit is unemployable. And they are constantly harassed, one daughter was followed and raped. Young daughter. She is suffering. The father feels his heart has been ripped out, not being able to protect her.

Things must have been extreme for the family to leave Congo. The family left first, more than 10 years ago. The father left 4 years ago. The youngest child is 3, the oldest 28.

However, they continue on, selling things on the streets, bringing it a little bit from singing and playing music.

The father runs a storefront church, where every Saturday, his band practices, and every Sunday, they meet with other members of the Congolese community to sing and praise.

Singing and playing music should bring in a lot. I want Soeur Madeleine to visit the US on tour in 2014, and I want her band to come with her. Soeur Madeleine sings like an angel, and when her band is with her, she is flying. Pure magic. Listen.
