Birmingham- based group The Redeemed have members hailing from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Their music reflects their heritage and a broad range of influences, including Rumba, Sebene, Zouk, Jazz, Gospel and more. The Redeemed were founded by Didier kisala, who united young musicians who were passionate about music. They decided to work together and have now developed into the group they are today. The Redeemed, referring to the definition of the word, says that they can create something different, playing typical Congolese Gospel music fused with different styles. They have performed in many variations for different events and venues, ranging from the full line up of 17 to smaller ensembles, creating a beautiful and soulful performance suited to smaller venues.
