"... when Toto St arrives on stage, it is a full room that applauds him. If he is a star in Angola, the musician is starting to be known in France ... and the least we can say is that it is unbelievable that it took so much time! Grooving with his guitar to the rhythm of afro soul ballads of incredible richness, he enchants the public and illuminates the Café de la Danse." Jessica SAVAL

There is a consciousness before, there is memory before and I have brought back these memories, my musical memories in this existence...."
