Highlights so far include performing at the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, live sessions for BBC Free Thinking Festival, BBC Radio 3 In Tune, World on 3 and an array of prestigious festivals and venues across the UK including The Bridgewater Hall, The Sage Gateshead, Celtic Connections, Musicport, Spitalfields Festival and Cambridge Folk Festival.

Kabantu are the winners of the Royal Over-Seas League Competition 2017.
