Kabantu Tickets

Reinventing global sounds, reimagining the rulebook, 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". Kabantu is a collective from Manchester, each born in a different country, who unravel new marriages of music in a globalised 21st century.

Highlights include performing at the BBC Proms (Royal Albert Hall), live sessions for BBC Free Thinking Festival, BBC Radio 3 In Tune, World on 3 and an array of renowned venues including King’s Place, Richmix, The Bridgewater Hall, TedX Manchester, The Sage Gateshead and Cadogan Hall.
