Kanda Bongo Man

The Beat-Herder Stage


Playing upbeat and soulful Congolese Soukous music with French-Caribbean influences, Kanda Bongo Man had hits in the 1980s with early albums including “Djessy”, showcasing his own Soukous style with passionately sung verses interspersed with intricate guitar work. Four decades on Bongo Man is still touring on the regular and his live performances are still full of energy and life – come see something a bit different that will get you smiling.
