Formed by a multi-national collective with a common love for African music, Mankala’s sound is greatly influenced by a variety of styles, from the joyous sounds of Soukous and Township to the hypnotic grooves of Afro-Beat and the Desert Blues, forging ‘original high energy African fusion Music’ with a distinctive style and a positive message…

Mankala have been performing their unique pan-African-coalition of sounds across the lengths of the UK and beyond since 2003, from the local music venues and streets of their home town of Bristol to the internationally renowned Jazz World Stage at Glastonbury Festival (now The West Holts), via the beautiful fields and stages of Shambala!
