‘Lit’ is a word that is often used to describe the exuberant music-and-dance experience that is Soukouss Internationale. It’s a simple term, but one that perfectly encapsulates the electric party vibes that this seven-piece outfit has induced in audiences all over WA.

This multicultural collective of performers showcases the utter infectiousness of high-energy African song and dance. With members hailing from Mozambique, Cuba, Reunion island, Zimbabwe, France, UK, and Australia, it’s always an authentic, colourful and energetic show celebrating the iconic Congolese musical style known as ‘soukouss’. The guitar solos and percussive rhythms conspire to lift you to the air, while the seductive basslines make sure that your feet are kept dancing on the ground.

People who come to Soukouss Internationale shows become Soukouss Internationale people – no matter their origin.

Come early and join in a FREE dance workshop from 4.00pm – 4.45pm. No experience necessary!
