Ruy Mingas, Angolan vocalist and guitar player, is one of his homeland’s most famous musicians and performers. Well known and loved in his home country and beyond since the late ’50s, Mingas has long been known as a pioneer in African music.

Today, drawing on his cultural and political background, Mingas serves as the Minister of Culture of Angola. He still regularly records and performs. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
