Kana

The story of the band started in 1999, with 7 old friends who would meet to play. After skimming some stages, they recorded their first album, eponymous of the Mauritius Island, in a beautiful studio in the middle of a sugar cane field. This amazing place determined the name of the band. Then, back to Paris and stronger from their experience in studio, they went on many stages and played for the opening of the Reggae Festival of Bercy, as well as for the MCM sessions, that they won ! In 2000, after releasing their first album, Kana established as the flagship of the French Reggae. In 2002 the very popular track « Plantation » arrived fifth out of 50 in the Top 50. In 2003, Kana came back with a second opus « Entre Frères », which was recorded in Dakar in the house of Youssou N’Dour. The band then followed its way on French, Belgium, Swiss and German stages, whilst sharing playing beside artists such as Israël Vibration, Jimmy Cliff, Alpha Blondy, Capleton, Amadou and Mariam, Pierpoljak, Tryo, Sinsemilia, Zebda, Mickey 3D, Rita Mitsouko...
