Beyond Music

The band name Miokal comes from the union of the name of two villages in the Democratic Republic of Congo (Miole and Kalungu) that were destroyed during the current war. Our mission is to share a message of hope.

Started in 2015, the band Miokal is formed by Médiane Mpunge (voice), Passy Grégor Nel (keys), Samy Mpunge (voice), Jean-Michel Dako (Electric guitar), Jonathan Mpunge (bass) and Gary Mpunge (drums). These artists represent 6 different countries such as, Ivory Coast, Haiti, Democratic Republic of Congo, and the place they now call home, Canada.

Inspired by love, hope, unity, peace and reconciliation, Miokal is a group that plays a variety of musical genres influenced by a mix of different cultures from all over the world.
