Kabantu, meaning ‘of the people’, is a quintet from Manchester who 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 to Brazilian sambas and beyond.

 

Kabantu has performed all over the UK, including at the BBC Proms and on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune. As well as winning the Royal Over-Seas League Ensemble Award, subsequently performing to royalty at the Cadogan Hall, the quintet was delighted to be Selected Making Music 2016–17 and BBC Introducing Artists.

 

"Utterly brilliant." BBC Radio 3, BBC Proms
