¡TROPICA! - Live Special / w Kasai Masai

For our next ¡Tropica! Live! Event we are extra super-stoked to have landed the very wonderful Kasai Masai, one of the UK's premier African music combos. All five members are from the Congo, home of the pan-African mega-hit music style known as soukous. These are illustrious musicians both inside and outside of the soukous sphere, their melodious sound captures the heat and majesty of Africa.

Don't just take our word for it – here's an opinion from Britain's long-time premier global music festival:

“Kasai Masai successfully marry a respect for vintage grooves with an overwhelming urge to move the dance floor - this is the sound of the old and new, of the countryside and the city, from deep in the heart of Africa…” - Nige Tassell, WOMAD Festival

...take a look and listen at their web site www.kasaimasai.com and feel the heat...

London-based Kasai Masai have graced the festival stages of WOMAD and Wilderness in the UK, Pete the Monkey, RainForest Festival in Malaysia, Oman World Music Festival, World Music Festival in Bahrain, Zain Party in Spain, Clonmel Festival in the Republic of Ireland and World Music LX in Portugal among others.

On Saturday June 8th you'll have the chance to enjoy their music in a far more intimate atmosphere.

Lead vocalist/percussionist Nickens Nkoso has worked alongside such soukous superstars as Kanda Bongo Man (Kasai Masai also currently perform as Kanda's backing band), Koffi Olomide, Papa Wemba, Madilu System, Canta Nyboma, Mose Fan Fan and Samba Mapangala. We'll be posting the working bios of the other band members here over the next couple of weeks, keep checking in!

So, what's the entry price for a fabulous evening with top musicians and ¡Tropica! DJs all in the perfect club/bar atmosphere of the Rise Bluebird Bakery you ask?

- £10 pp advance
- Limited supply of Earlybird Tickets at £5 pp
- We will reserve a small number of tickets for on-the-door purchase at £15 pp
