Kasai Allstars (COD)

Kaserne Basel & Parterre One

Kasai Allstars are a 25-piece musical collective based in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, which, just like Konono No1, are signed up to the renowned Belgian label Crammed Discs and have amassed a huge following in the West due to their innovative Congo sound. Five bands originating from different ethnic communities with different languages and conflicting relationships over the years joined forces to overcome these differences by finding a kinship in their common love of music. In 2017, they provided the soundtrack for «Félicité», a film by Alain Gomis, which was awarded the jury prize at the Berlin Film Festival 2017. You now have the chance to experience this superband live before the film is released in Swiss cinemas on 19 October!
