Academy Events presents: Kassav’ live!
Kassav’ are the international ambassadors for the Caribbean dance music known as Zouk that is sung in French Creole. They are musicians from Guadeloupe and Martinique that have lived in Paris most of their professional career.
Zouk comes from the cross-pollination of ritual and carnival music from Guadeloupe with other Caribbean/ North American dance music and French pop, delivered with modern instruments and recording-studio precision. Zouker means to party, preferably with a zouk band and a dance floor, and Kassav’ definitely bring the party!
They are simply one of the most popular French bands ever, and have toured extensively over 4 continents. Between 2009 and 2016 they played over 400 concerts and have performed live to over 2 million fans!
Following a sold out show at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in March, they return in concert with their full ensemble over Notting Hill Carnival weekend – Saturday 26th August and Sunday 27th August at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.
Sun Bailante, London’s maddest Carnival sound will get the patrons into the party mood by playing the hottest Caribbean & Carnival music from 7pm, as the doors open on the Saturday date.
Here are some songs from them:
Zouk La Se Sel Medikaman Nou Ni
Mwen Malad Aw
