Harrogate International Festivals’ most flamboyant event returns as the magical Spiegeltent is resurrected in Crescent Gardens, and we are delighted to welcome Kasai Masai.
Based in London and led by Nickens Nkoso, Kasai Masai’s music reflects their journey from the rural to urban, performing music which has been passed on from generation to generation combined with their own contemporary style. Written in Swahili, Lingala and Kimongo, Kasai Masai’s lyrics portray the cultural diversity of Congo where more than four hundred languages are spoken. The band’s fast-paced style of soukous and rumba meld with Congolese folkloric traditions to create an infectious form of dance music. Expect galloping rhythms, strong melodies, passionate beats, swinging guitars and moving saxophone as Kasai Masai make their Harrogate debut. Theirs is a sound that will transport you to a land where music is a way of life.
