Kabantu return to Lancaster Arts with a music performance celebrating the release of their debut album ‘Of The People’ at 7.30pm on Saturday 17 February 2018.

Kabantu, based in Manchester, unravel new marriages of music from around the globe to celebrate the space where different cultures meet.

Vocal harmonies from South Africa coalesce with everything from Celtic reels and Brazilian samba to Balkan folk music and beyond. Kabantu use their music to bridge countries and cultures, creating an exuberant and joyful sound.

Since the group formed they have been hoovering up awards both as soloists and with the ensemble, including the Royal Overseas League Prizes. Their philosophy of music as a connecting force for good is a strong motivation in all their work, and Lancaster Arts are enjoying a fruitful relationship with them over the next few years.

Expect energetic marriages of music from around the globe, folk-influenced melodies crossing different cultures and an exquisite performance from five of the UK’s best young musicians.

During the evening, you can purchase copies of their debut album ‘Of The People’
