Maurice YEKA is Congolese by nationality, but it would be better to call him a citizen of the world as he has made it his prime objective never to confine himself within any boundary. He is endowed with many talents. For us who know to a certain extent – how would we claim to know perfectly his complex artistic mind? – his life is a real piece of art. His life always speaks, even when there is no witness.
We are sure that everyone will discover (not necessarily for the first time) Maurice YEKA’s seminal word. Maurice has never been interested in the often sterile taxonomy of the so-called erudite, quite like Prometheus he prefers to give us the fire instead of just talking about it. Umberto ECO’s sentence which says that “the beauty of the cosmos does not only derive from unity in variety, but also from variety in unity” applies to Maurice’s Music. None of his songs is ever the repetition of the other, and yet all his works are characterized by one thread: INNOCENCE – a virtue that should return to us if at all we are to aspire to redemption. For Maurice redemption is reconciliation between self and environment.
