Kanda Bongo ManCongolese Soukous Superstar, Kanda Bongo Man was a favourite of the late, great John Peel and was first introduced to UK audiences by Peter Gabriel at the inaugural WOMAD festival. He has headlined world music festivals throughout the world, and his performances include an appearance at Africa Calling at the Eden Project, during Live 8 2005. As one member of the press famously said, “If Kanda Bongo doesn’t make you want to dance, call an ambulance. You’re dead!”
