  • Band on the Wall, Manchester

Time for some serious ‘kwassa kwassa‘ moves on the dancefloor as Africa’s most joyful popstar brings the party to town for what promises to be a fantastic night out.

Soukous is the pop music of Africa and Congo’s Kanda Bongo Man is its master. Its joyful, mesmerizing, hip-shaking groove has led to stadium-size parties erupting at the many festivals this international superstar has played including the very first WOMAD in 1982. Last time Kanda Bongo Man played Band on the Wall he had the audience dancing ‘kwassa kwassa’ style all night – get ready to party !

Presented by Band on the Wall in association with We Face Forward – a season of contemporary art and music from West Africa, celebrated across Manchester as part of the London 2012 Festival. www.wefaceforward.org 

This event will begin at 8.30pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open from 5.30pm for delicious food and drinks.
