Angola: Culture Ministry Recalls Deeds of Singer Manax

Luanda — The Ministry of Culture Tuesday in Luanda highlighted the deeds of Angolan singer Manax who passed away on December 13 this year, Angop learned.

In a press note that reached Angop on Tuesday in Luanda, the Ministry of Culture recalls Manax as one of the main figures of the infant music produced in the 1980's.

According to the note signed by the minister of Culture, Rosa Cruz e Silva, the loss of the interpreter of songs that marked the phase of highest production of infant music in the country leaves an un-refillable void.

"Manax lent his voice by recording such beautiful songs as Ingulungumba, together with fellow singer Ângelo Boss, Carnaval, with Toy Graça, Parabéns and Natacha, many of which written by Rosa Roque", reads the note.

Manax who died of a heart failure, emerged as a musician in the 1980's, together with such names as Mamborró (also late), Joseca, Flávia, Venâncio Prata and others.

The remains of the singer were buried on Monday, December 17, at Santa Ana cemetery, in Luanda.
