Kabantu

Tue 9 July 2019

Reinventing global sounds, throwing away the rulebook – Kabantu is a quintet from Manchester who unravel new marriages of music from around the globe to celebrate the space where different cultures collaborate. ‘Kabantu’ means ‘of the people’ – stemming from the South African philosophy of Ubuntu – ‘I am what I am because of who we all are’. This is autonomous music bridging countries and cultures, an egalitarian creative process to defy genre and embrace sheer joy in music from all over the globe. One of the triumphs of last year’s Spiegeltent season, Kabantu bring their joyful music to the Pavilion Café in 2019.
