Kagome artificial spin ice (KASI) is a network of Ising type nanobars on a kagome lattice. We investigate spin dynamics of a KASI consisting of Ni81Fe19 nanomagnets arranged on an interconnected kagome lattice using broadband ferromagnetic resonance (FMR), magnetic force microscopy (MFM), micro-focus Brillouin light scattering (BLS) microscopy and X-ray photoemission electron microscopy (XPEEM). Micro-focus BLS performed on magnetically disordered states exhibit a series of magnon resonances which depend on topological defect configurations. We experimentally reconfigure microstates in ASI using a 2D vector field protocol and apply microwave-assisted switching to intentionally trigger reversal. Our work is key for the creation of avalanches inside the kagome ASI and reprogrammable magnonics based on ASIs.
