- Born: 08/23/1944, in Kifangondo, Angola
David Zé (23 August 1944 — 27 May 1977) was an Angolan musician. He began his career while Angola was still under the rule of the Portuguese Empire and his music often expressed left-wing and anti-colonialist sentiments. After Angola obtained independence from Portugal in 1975, he was given the official position of Director of Music in the incoming MPLA regime.
His career only lasted for about a decade, but he established himself as one of the biggest name in the “golden age” of Angolan music of the early 1970s. He was killed during or after a failed coup that took place in 1977 and his music was banned from radio for more than a decade.
