Event Excerpt
This week, Kasaï Masaï bring the traditional sound of remote equatorial African villages to the Horniman, adding a unique and contemporary twist on the way. The band plays ancestral music which has been passed on from generation to generation and is rooted in the healing power of percussion and chanting combined with the majestic sound of the Congolese folk guitar. The saxophone and an MC were added to bring a new element to the music: essential urban groves from Kinshasa.
