Catrin Finch & Seckou Keita
This sublime, critically acclaimed and multi award-winning collaboration comes to Birmingham to the first time. Two adventurous virtuoso musicians, Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita, will deliver a stunning exhibition of world-class musicianship off the back of their second album release.
Drawing deep on their own diverse traditions and transforming them with remarkable synergy, Catrin and Seckou have built a formidable reputation for extraordinary performances. Following the huge success of their debut release, 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 returned 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, in an innate and epic journey of endurance.
