This sublime, critically acclaimed and multi award-winning collaboration between two adventurous virtuoso musicians — Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita — delivers a stunning exhibition of world-class musicianship.
Drawing deep on their own diverse traditions and transforming them with remarkable synergy, Catrin and Seckou have built a formidable reputation for ex-traordinary performances. Following the huge success of their debut release Clychau Dibon back in 2013, their long-awaited second album ‘SOAR’ launches in April 2018. The album takes flight on the wings of the osprey, the magnificent bird of prey recently re-turned to Wales after centuries of absence, which makes its annual 3,000-mile migration from the coasts of West Africa to the estuaries of Wales, soaring like music and dreams over man-made borders, inan innate and epic journey of Endurance. Entrancing, mes-meric, intricate and ethereal, this is remarkable music and a thrilling live experience.
Catrin Finch & Seckou Keita are joined by with Rachel McShane and the Cartographers.
