Kanda Bongo Man

On sale! African Night Fever & Yaram Present: Kanda Bongo Man "King of Soukous" + After Party Sat 12 Oct

Kanda revolutionised the Congolese favourite music of soukous after parting with Orchestra Belle Mambo to take up a solo career in Paris in 1979. He is most famous for his structural changes he implemented to soukous music with mesmerising guitar solos that gave birth to the famous “Kwasa Kwasa” Dance

He went to produce many albums most notably the Kwasa Kwasa and Amour Fou plus the most recent release of Soukous Time album.

Kanda Bongo Man on stage, with the power house of the backing guitars, gives no room for standing still; the whole body has to move to the upbeat Soukous and Kwasa Kwasa Dance.

With African Night Fever DJs in the mix there expect a guaranteed African party atmosphere.
