Enjoy Afro-Vibes with the Congo Beach Club. African music from the 80s to 2000s. We play songs by Cheb Khaled, Kanda Bongo Man and Manu Dibango, from Algeria to Kenya, among others. Bouncing soukous and sizzling Congolese rumbas. Boredom is out of the question at Congo Beach Club (formerly Kuni Kids), because they have their own style, developed in the 80s and 90s.

Enjoy the solid soukous riffs of John "Ya M'bongo" Ligtenberg, former agricultural consultant in remote villages in Burkina Fasso, where he was forever enchanted by the mesmerizing rhythm-guitar riffs of Lokassa Ya M'bongo. Ripping rock solos or intriguingly woven guitar patterns: John does it all, and with all his heart. In the process, John is the only white mi-composé guitarist in the Western Hemisphere. Venez Voir!
Come dance to the rolls of Julian Huiswoud, the new Surinamese drummer of the Congo Beach Club.
With Steven Coljé on tenor and alto saxophone, the band gets an extra dimension; jazzy and funky, he forges a link between Old Skool rumba and hot soukous of bands like Wenge Musica.
And come dance, to the bouncing bass lines of bassist and bandleader Koen 'Kuni' Verbeek. His nights in Matongé, Kinshasa's hottest district, converted him to the Congolese rumba for good. In all its forms, and in all languages. Congo Beach Club sings in Lingala, Swahili, English and French. Maboko! All those hands! Take a "Return trip to the Congo" and come dance at the Congo Beach Club!

Sympathetic bond

An atmospheric, swinging and enthusiastic performance that made our guests happy and made them dance. At our farewell party the band played soukous and other swinging African music, a.o. by Manu Dibango: famous songs in their own interpretation. We would like to experience that one more time!
