Award-winning anthropologist and musician, Marius Bilgobenson, is releasing his beautiful, brand new single “Tears on the Ground” on Friday, March 13, 2020.
Originally hailing from the Congo River Basin, Bilgobenson works tirelessly to promote cross-cultural dialogue. Inspired by the likes of Louis Armstong, he has chosen jazz fusion as his means of communicating his powerful messages of civil rights advocacy to the world. His music contains elements of jazz, R&B, blues and indigenous African traditions which further drive home his message of inclusivity and awareness for disenfranchised communities.
When asked about his upcoming release Bilgobenson shares:
“Tears On The Ground celebrates the social advocates who have shaped, cared and embraced our pleasant lives. It aims to remind people to take a moment to look around and appreciate the benefactors, both seen and unseen, that have made us the great kings we are today.”

“I am a little fly trying to provoke elephants,” shares singer-songwriter Marius Billgobenson. “Music is my tool to passionately affect change worldwide”
Marius is an award-winning anthropologist, a fiery advocate, and something of an ethnomusicologist and a curator of cultures. With his words, his music, and his life, he’s telling the world stories they need hear about marginalized people, environmental issues, and human rights.
Marius’s invigorating blend of jazz instrumentation with indigenous African music seeks to bring awareness to disenfranchised communities. His passion and purpose are sharing the culture and concerns of his native land of the Congo River Basin—particularly, the plight of the Forest People, sometimes referred to as the “Pygmies” who reside inthe Congo rainforest—but his message reverberates universally. Today, the Stockholm, Sweden-based artist announces a stunning pair of singles, “Tribes in Mind” and “Tears on the Ground.”
Marius has become one of the most powerful voices of the Congolese community. He’s been recognized for his humanitarian work by ACNU (the UN Association for the Promotion of Human Rights in Congo), the French Cultural Center, Regional Cultural Minister in Pointe-Noire, and Congolese Art and Cultural Minister. With the organization Afrique Profonde, he’s worked tirelessly to promote cross-cultural dialogue, and understanding and education through artistic exchanges with individuals and groups within Africa and beyond.
