Growing up, Gentil Misigaro only knew the world as a place of loss, fear, and death. For fifteen years he and his family moved from country to country to escape the violence, but it followed them from their village in Congo to Rwanda and then Uganda. Through it all Gentil found strength and hope in music.
When his family got the news that they had finally found a new home in Canada, Gentil saw his music as a powerful force that could bring positive change to his new homeland and to the world.
Gentil is a multi instrumentalist, singer and a performer. Gentil went on a world tour to promote his album in Europe, Australia, Canada and Africa in 2019 and has received numerous awards including top 2014 Canadian immigrant and in 2019 , receiving the Best East African diaspora male Artist award.
