Togolese-born guitarist Amen Viana released his new single “Brother Remix” on January 29. A music video featuring artists such as King Mensah from Togo, Florence Naprix from Guadeloupe, Bholoja from Switzerland and Franco-Guadeloupean Stefan Filey.

“Borther Remix” is the latest hit by Togolese artist Amen Viana released on January 29. With this title, Amen Viana expresses convictions built up over time and meetings. He has been touring the scenes with the golden voice of Togo, King Mensah, joined by Florence Naprix’s Creole, Bholoja’s Swazi and Stefan Filey’s soul. Musical fusion makes two companies of dancers leap with communicative energy. The musical mixing is bubbling, the dynamic irresistible. With the music video of Brother Remix, Amen Viana talks about friendship and fraternity in a broader sense.

Originally from Togo, Amen Viana is a guitarist, singer, composer and arranger. The artist quickly climbed the ranks of the West African music scene, before settling in France. His guitar virtuosity recalls that of Jimi Hendrix, his rock energy that of Living Colour. He quickly established a reputation in many international events where he was invited to play alongside artists such as Black-Eyed Peas, Angélique Kidjo, Indila, Cheick Tidiane Seck, Tony Allen.

In addition to the hundreds of albums he has collaborated with other artists, Amen Viana has composed and recorded five albums: Gamessou (2007), Togo to Go (2010), Funkabelik (2012), Pearls and Gold (2012) and Electric Togoland (2017).

Amen Viana is in the midst of preparing her next album, The Afrocanalyst, which marks a new stage in the artist’s career. Recorded throughout his musical travels and co-directed with Kwamé Yeboah (Cat Stevens, Craig David, Osibisa, Kwasibu Area Band) he reflects on his journey and brings together guests such as Keziah Jones and Akua Naru.
