François Luambo Makiadi (6 July 1938 - 12 October 1989) was a major figure in twentieth century Congolese music, and African music in general. He is widely referred to as Franco Luambo or, simply, Franco. Known for his mastery of rumba, he was nicknamed the "Sorcerer of the Guitar" for his seemingly effortlessly fluid playing. As a founder of the seminal group OK Jazz, he is counted as one of the originators of the modern Congolese sound.

Franco was an extremely talented writer and composer, and to this day remains one of the greatest figures of African songwriting. His creativity and guitar style have influenced several generations and remain a source of inspiration for the artists of an entire continent.
