Catrin Finch and Seckou Keita Tickets

Catrin Finch and Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita join forces in a stunning exhibition of world-class musicianship, celebrating the remarkable affinities between the Welsh harp and the West African kora. Catrin Finch, a celebrated classical harpist, has won accolades the world over for her virtuosic performances with some of the world’s finest orchestras. A fearless performer, she has also worked with Malian kora player Toumani Diabaté, and Colombian band Cimarrón, and switches from Bach’s Goldberg Variations to traditional folk or Colombian joropo music with apparent ease.
Born into the world-famous royal Keita and griot Cissokho families, Seckou Keita from the Casamance area of Senegal has earned worldwide acclaim for his ground-breaking kora playing, and in addition to his solo career, recently winning Songlines Best Africa and Middle East category for his solo album 22 Strings, Seckou has played with his uncle Solo Cissokho and Guinean master djembe player Mamady Keita, Salif Keita and Youssou N’Dour, and most recently alongside Paul Weller, Damon Albarn and Julia Holter on the Africa Express presents The Orchestra of Syrian Musicians tour.
