“an unforgettable, friendly, sunshine experience the whole family will enjoy”

With his incredible seven-piece band, Kanda’s music is driven by optimism, happiness and exhilarating performance, which is deeply rooted in the Congolese tradition. He is one of the biggest stars in world music and a leading exponent of African music.

Kanda revolutionised Congolese soukous music, making it  more popular than ever to give birth to the famous” KWASA KWASA” DANCE.

Come alone or come with family and friends, either way you’ll find welcoming, smiling faces.
