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 African Soukous music.
Championed by John Peel and Andy Kershaw in the late 80’s, he developed a huge loyal fanbase, and was a key figure in the introduction of African & World music to the mainstream. His music can still be regularly heard on mainstream radio – especially BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 3.
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 tours with the backing of his incredible band. Not to be missed!
