With members from Mozambique, Cuba, France, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Zambia, UK, Sierra Leone and Australia, Soukouss Internationale present a colourful and energetic show celebrating the iconic Congolese musical style known as soukouss.
For more than 50 years Congolese music has been the hit sound all over Africa, and with good reason: gorgeous vocal melodies, pumping booty shaking rhythms and scorching guitar solos.
In a sort space of time the band have established themselves as one of Western Australia’s most popular dance bands, proving their mettle with performances at events such as Leederville Carnival, RTRfm’s A Moment in Time at the WA Museum, Fremantle’s Hidden Treasures, as well as with nominations for Best World Act and Most Popular Live Act at the 2017 WAM Awards.
Soukouss means “shake it”! Get ready for an unforgettable night of music and dance!
