Afrikaba in association with Yaram presents...

Kanda Bongo Man is one of the biggest stars in world music and one of the leading exponents of African music.  Kanda revolutionised Congo’s favourite music, Soukous, by introducing mesmerizing guitar solos, giving rise to the famous” KWASA KWASA” DANCE.

Championed by John Peel and Andy Kershaw in the late 1980s, Kanda played a key role in introducing African and world music to the mainstream.

Now with a huge and loyal fan base, Kanda’s music receives regular airplay on stations including BBC Radio 3 and Radio 6 Music.

Driven by optimism and happiness, Kanda’s performances are exhilarating, energetic and deeply rooted in Congolese tradition.

For one night only, Kanda Bongoman brings to Hastings, the joyous music and dance of central Africa.
