CATRIN FINCH AND SECKOU KEITA

Saturday 12 June 2021, 7.30pm

 

 

The award-winning duo Welsh Harpist Catrin Finch and Senegalese Kora virtuoso Seckou Keita (BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Best Group 2019) present a special preview of selected new material, plus some old favourites drawn from their first two acclaimed albums, Clychau Dibon and SOAR.

The harp occupies a vital place in the incredibly rich cultures of both West Africa and Wales, and both nations share a centuries-old bardic tradition of intricate oral history, expressed through music, song and verse. Following a chance collaboration in 2012, Finch and Keita have been creating music that not only champions these exquisite instruments but blends elements of new and old music from the Western Classical, Celtic and Senegalese song traditions; revealing a striking common thread between different cultures and times.
