Rwandan artist shines in Belgium

STROMAE’s music is really worth listening to, even though you probably may not understand the meaning of all the words. Not because he raps very fast, or his mediocre filler, but the guy is simply on top of his game. Stromae, whose real name is Paul Van Haver, was born March 12, 1985 in Brussels, Belgium to a Rwandan father and a Belgian mother.

STROMAE’s music is really worth listening to, even though you probably may not understand the meaning of all the words. Not because he raps very fast, or his mediocre filler, but the guy is simply on top of his game.

Stromae, whose real name is Paul Van Haver, was born March 12, 1985 in Brussels, Belgium to a Rwandan father and a Belgian mother.

The 26-year-old singer took his first lessons in music theory at a tender age of 11, and quickly developed a passion for composition.

Stromae has emerged as a star, making the best videos, catchy songs and creating the most headlines. His music, a mix of hip-hop and electro, has attracted a large audience.

His 2009 debut single ‘Alors on danse’ shot to number one in France and later to Netherlands, Greece, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Belgium and the Czech Republic.

Currently, Stromae has various singles to his credit and has composed songs for various artists, including Anggun, Kery James, and Melissa M.

His music, without sounding too corny, is definitely a breath of fresh air amongst the Justin Beibers and Jason Derulos and Katy Purrys and Keshas.

The musician, famous for his warm charismatic character and loads of energy, is set to capture the world with his music.

Stromae’s 2009 ‘So they dance’ single received rave reviews in Germany, Belgium and France, whilst his 2010 ‘Cheese’ album is a big hit in Rwanda.

Stromae’s albums include: ‘Alors On Danse’, ‘Up Saw Liz’, ‘Cheese’, ‘Bienvenue Chez Moi’, ‘Te Quiero’, ‘House’lelluya’ and ‘Rail De Musique.’
