Music performance by ‘world music’ band ‘Kan Beng’.
Kan Beng was formed in London in 2017 by Gambian percussionist Seneke Sillah. The band’s vision is to create a group blending traditional melodies and rhythms from various cultures with western styles of music to create a unique and intoxicating concoction of traditional Mandinka folk, Berber folk, Jewish folk, funk rock and jungle.
Kan Beng’s influences are eclectic and far-reaching, making for exciting, unpredictable music that mirrors the harmonious message at the band´s core: that music is a universal language that can unite all cultures. Kan Beng represents the confluence of musical cultures, one voice born from many traditions.
The name ‘Kan Beng’ means ‘One Voice’ in Mandinka. The band live up to their namesake by creating music that is at once both deeply spiritual and infectiously danceable!
