Blending and fussing the traditional instruments with modern electronic guitars to meet the demand of the 21st century diaspora, Musa has earned himself a reputation of a true entertainer and a master of the art through his creativity and innovative approach to the new style of West African Music.

Hailing from Tanzania and learning his craft from his Grand Father, Kanda grew up to become one of the most talented multi instrumentalist of African Traditional Music with a sweet melody voice accompanied by mesmerising charismatic stage presence with a feel good factor, through the energy of his performance.

A former member of the great Remmy Ongala’s Super Matimila Band, Saidi went to be awarded Womad Percussionist of the year in 1989.

Kasai Masai known for their unique style of blending traditional sounds of equatorial African Village with a distinctive urban edge, where fast paced Soukous and Rumba meld with Congolese folkloric traditions to create infectious dance music.

The soaring voice of band leader and lead singer Nickens Koso accompanied with mesmerising guitar rhythms leaves no room for standing still with Kasai Masai on stage. This is truly a night of happy African dance party.

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.

Kasai Masai’s original compositions have moved beyond traditional expectations of Congolese music with their galloping rhythms, strong melodies, passionate beats, swinging guitars, moving saxophone.
