The man who gave the world the infectious Kwasa Kwasa dance Kanda Bongo Man is one of the first pioneers of African Soukous music.
His music is 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. Performing with the backing of Kanda Bongo Man’s incredible six-piece band this is the ultimate in ‘feel-good’ dance music.
