Lister's DVD

About music,Lister Elia thinks globally & indeed his music is scatterd into various types of music from afro pops/traditional to jazz and reggae, but still he has his own musical color and style. He does compose in swahili, english and sometimes in japanese and also in his native mother tongue inorder to deliver soothing sounds and perfect message to his fans and shove out language barriers as much as he can.Though, his DVD is in final touch Lister gives you a glimpse of his songs in his DVD dedicated to all his fans around the world. Songs like "Mpambano"(struggle), Mama Happy, Music of the people, Solitude, Hasidi(rude person) and I wanna make U mine.. will truly define his words.
