Let’s create a life with love and unity!
Kush Band plays Reggae, Sufi Music and Sahara Music, music with an african groove. Band leader is Mo Ahmed, singer and djembé player from Sudan, who over the years collaborated with many musicians. Today, in Kush Band, he again brings together an international group of musicians on percussion, guitar, vocals, saxophone, trumpet, piano. Mo took the authentic Sudanese rythms and songs from the desert to the Netherlands, and his songs speak of the longing for peace, freedom and equality. The music, however, is for dancing: Kush Band usually brings people on their feet within minutes!!!!!
Kush Band is named after the famous Kingdom of Kush, a higly civilized and powerfull force in the Nile Valley (Northern Sudan and Soutern Egypt) from before 1000 BC until 350 AD. The Kingdom of Kush was very advanced in all kinds of technology, medicine, science and arts. They built beautiful pyramids, of which many have been saved until today. Their archers were famous in the region. Women were higly respected in the Kingdom, and the country has been ruled by several queens. Kush Band, in its name, honours this cultural and social heritage.
