Kanda Bongo Man (born 1955), from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, is a prominent soukous musician. He is most famous for the structural changes he implemented to soukous music.

Kanda Bongo Man revolutionized soukous by encouraging guitar solos after every verse and even sometimes at the beginning of the song.

For the album by Congolese musician Kanda Bongo Man, see Kwassa Kwassa (album). Kwassa kwassa (or kwasa kwasa) is a dance created by Jeannora who was a mechanic in Kinshasa from the Democratic Republic of the Congo that started in the 1980s where the hips move back and forth while the hands move to follow the hips. It was very popular in Africa. The dance was popularized by soukous music videos, as well as the videos of Kanda Bongo Man, Pepe Kalle, Viva La Musica, and other Congolese musicians. For the first time in Congo all the groups adopted these dance steps which had not happened before, because bands preferred to have their own specific dance.
