Music, Mon 28 Jan 2019, £5-£10




Experience two of the very best acts in world music in one very special double bill!

CATRIN FINCH & SECKOU KEITA (Cymru/Senegal) - Award winning duo Catrin Finch and Seckou Keita join forces to celebrate the remarkable affinities between the Welsh harp and the West African kora. Their sublime music creates a unique soundscape; Mandinka rhythms mix effortlessly with Welsh tunes, with hypnotic improvisations from both in an exhilarating and playful set which leaps over cultural barriers, roaming freely in borderless musical territory.

BASSEKOU KOUYATE & NGONI BA (Mali) - Bassekou Kouyate is one of the true masters of the ngoni, an ancient traditional lute found throughout West Africa, and is respected as one of Africa’s premier global artists. His band, Ngoni Ba, includes three ngoni players (featuring ngonis with differing tonal sizes), two percussionists and the fantastic singer Amy Sacko. Together they have revolutionised the sound of the ngoni, and radically fired centuries of griot tradition into the future.
