About

Celebrating the space where different cultures meet.

Kabantu means “of the people” – stemming from the South African philosophy of Ubuntu: “I am who I am because of who we all are”. “I am who I am because of who we all are”.

Kabantu is a band of virtuosi wielding an expansive sonic arsenal; originally classically trained, they draw on an intricate palette of colours curated from their own wide listening to collaboratively write original music influenced by folk music from around the globe. The sheer musicianship of each member, an exhilarating collective unexpectedness and an infectious joy on stage is mind blowing, cultivated by a shared immediacy of expression forged by total trust.

immaculate…a rousing display of fine musicianship” The Guardian
