Ferré Gola, also Ferre Gola, whose full name is Hervé NGola Bataringe, is a DR Congolese recording artist. “Gola” is an acronym or short form of his real name: NGola (vocalist, and entertainer). He at one time was a member of the Congolese band Quartier Latin International, founded and led since 1986, by Koffi Olomide.
He was born on 3 March 1976, in Kinshasa, the largest city and capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. From an early age, he was passionate about becoming a professional musician. Ferré gola began his career in a band in Bandalungwa commune called “Rumba des Jeunes” before making his historic entry in “Wenge Musica” in 1995.
At the split of this group, Ferré Gola joined Werrason in “Maison mère” for 7 years, before creating with Bill Cliton and Jus d’été “Marquess of Maison mère”. But, “Les Marquis” burst out a few months later after the triumphant release of the opus “Miracles”, best album at the KORA awards 2005 in South Africa.
