Kasai Masai

Have you experienced the joys of Urban Equitorial Funk?

First class exponents of the Soukous style of music, Kasai Masai aren’t known for doing things by halves.

Based in London, and led by Voodoo King, Nickens Nkoso, Kasai Masai mix the traditional sound of the equatorial African village with a distinctive urban edge. The band’s fast-paced style of Soukous and African Rumba is impossible to stay still to.

From the plains to the soaring heights, theirs is a sound that will transport you to a land where music is more than just entertainment, they will take you to a place where it is a way of life.

The tickets cost £10 with £5 donated to Women for Refugee Women and follows a full day’s programme at the Vortex Downstairs celebrating community, sport and culture, and cheering on the Refugee Olympic Athletes in the Judo.

Find out more about the day programme at Sport and Culture: Breaking Barriers and part of Rio in Dalston.
