Kasai Allstars tour Europe to celebrate "Félicité"


The band have a central role in the award-winning fiction film. They're playing a dozen European shows in October, to celebrate the movie's release in several countries

French-Senegalese director Alain Gomis drew his inspiration for his film from the music of Kasai Allstars, and the sublime voice of their singer Muambuyi. The band recorded most of the soundtrack, and appear onscreen playing their own part. The film was awarded the Silver Bear Grand Jury Award at the Berlin Film Festival, the Golden Stallion at the FESPACO (Panafrican Film Festival), and no less than 6 awards (including best soundtrack) at the Africa Movie Academy Awards in Lagos.

To celebrate the film's success and its release in Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands and the UK, Kasai Allstars will be playing the following shows, with a tight, rockier line-up.
Some of the shows are linked to premiere screenings of the film.
