The King of Soukous & Kwasa- Kwasa

African Night Fever brings the Kinshasa summer sunshine to South Street Arts Centre Featuring Kanda Bongo Man The King of Soukous.

Kanda revolutionised the Congolese favourite music of soukous after parting with Orchestra Belle Mambo to take up a solo career in Paris in 1979. He is most famous for his structural changes he implemented to soukous music with mesmerizing guitar solos that gave birth to the famous” KWASA KWASA” DANCE

He went to produce many albums most notably the” Kwasa Kwasa” and” Amour Fou” plus the most recent release of Soukous Time album.

With African Night Fever djs in the mist will certainly produce a guaranteed African party atmosphere.
