Kabantu, an eclectic five-piece hailing from Manchester, unravel new marriages of music from around the globe. Vocal harmonies from South Africa blend with everything from Celtic reels and Balkan folk music to Brazilian samba and beyond. Kabantu have performed all over the UK including at the Royal Albert Hall, Sage Gateshead and Cadogan Hall, and have appeared at the BBC Proms, Celtic Connections and the Cambridge Folk Festival. In 2018 Kabantu released their debut album ‘Of the People’ to critical acclaim, recorded by the Mercury-nominated producer Gerry Diver. Performing on violin, cello, double bass, guitar and percussion, Kabantu use music to bridge countries and cultures - expect upliftingly exuberant and joyful performances as Kabantu tour Dorset with Artsreach, the counties touring arts charity.
