Monga was born and raised in a musical family in the Democratic Republic of Congo. However, due to the escalating violence, he was forced to escape with his family, finding refuge in Tanzania’s Mkugwa Refugee Camp. In the camp, his family continued singing and worshipping God through music, this was to be the foundation of Monga’s musical odyssey. When Monga and his family first settled in Australia on 21st December 2005, they formed the Angels Voices Band with other Congolese families residing in Shepparton. Monga became the ensemble leader at the age of 10. Monga has now embarked on his solo career and in 2013 was selected to represent Australia at the World Championships of Performing Arts in Hollywood and was also inducted into the Victorian Refugee Recognition Record for his outstanding work in the community.
