Music for Change 10 year celebration

Kasai Masai


Thursday 7 February 7.45pm

Gulbenkian Theatre, Canterbury


Canterbury based, Music for Change, the UK’s leading arts charity delivering cultural understanding work is celebrating its 10th anniversary on Thursday 7 February.


Based in London, Congolese Kasai Masai bring us the traditional sound of the most remote equatorial African villages with an Urban Twist.


The band is a 5 piece outfit, consisting of d'jembe, guitar, saxophone, bass and drum. To add that extra exotic touch they are also joined by two female dancers.


Named after a river, Kasai lies in the heart of the rain forest where many tribes such as the Pygmies still maintain their traditional lifestyles. The Masai, just Web Bug from cid:006a01c85f46$40d7c0d0$0e270c81_at_ad_dot_kent_dot_ac_dot_uklike the Baka, are another dignified tribe whose lives still centre around a Web Bug from cid:006a01c85f46$40d7c0d0$0e270c81_at_ad_dot_kent_dot_ac_dot_uknomadic existence.


"This is the sound of the old and the new, of the countryside and the city, from deep in the heart of Africa..."  Nige Tassell - Reading Womad Festival


Join the party at the Gulbenkian Theatre in Canterbury and come early for the pre-show entertainment in the café bar.


Also performing are U’Zambezi; UK based ensemble specialising in songs and dances from townships of Southern Africa and Téa Hodzic; an evocative voice that has enchanted audiences from Womad to Sarajevo.
