DANCE TO THE BEAT OF THE KANDA BONGO MAN
It’s all about dance and feel-good vibes. This is the man who single-handedly gave the world the infectious Kwasa Kwasa dance, and one of the pioneers of Congolese Soukous music. The songs are catchy, the groove is infectious, he is sheer charisma on stage, and his dancers and their hips are going to bring the house down.
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.” This is the ultimate in ‘feel-good’ dance music and a highlight to any programme.
