The man who single-handedly gave the world the infectious Kwasa Kwasa dance; Kanda Bongo Man is one of the most well known stars of world music, and one of the first pioneers of he African Soukous music.
His music has always been driven by optimism and happiness, and his exhilarating performances are fast moving and exciting combinations of dance music and dance moves rooted deep in the Congolese tradition.
As the famous saying goes – “If Kanda Bongo Man doesn’t make you want to dance, call an ambulance. You’re dead.”
Still hugely popular today, Kanda Bongo Man comes to London from his new base of South Africa to tour with his incredible 8-piece band. This is the ultimate in ‘feel-good’ dance music and a highlight to any programme.
