The Angolan performer Eduardo Paím is one of the artists welcomed to take part in the fifth version of the Afrokizomba Festival of Geneva, Switzerland, booked to occur on 02 June this year.
As per the performer’s generation organization, on a note that has been sent to ANGOP, Eduardo Paím has been welcome to that celebration by its coordinator, Alexandra de Brito, who needs the Angolan Kizomba music class to be known in Switzerland.
Other than his melodic execution, the vocalist, lyricist and maker will likewise direct a workshop on the Kizomba music.
Eduardo Paím went to the spotlight of Angolan music in the mid 1980’s as one of the pioneers of the S.O.S band.
In the early 1990’s the musician relocated to Portugal where he perfected his musical and production skills and, thus, rose to prominence as one of the main promoters and improvers of the Kizomba music genre (which blossomed in Angola in the 1980’s).
While in Portugal, Eduardo Paim worked as producer and also released several albums, one of which (entitled “Do Kayaya”) won a Gold Disc prize for selling more than fifty thousand copies.
He started his music career in 1979 in the “Os Puros” band, which he formed with two other friends, Bruno Lara and Levi Marcelino.
His latest album was released in 2012, which is entitled Etu Mudietu.
