Antonio Forcione

Antonio Forcione appearing at this event

Breaking the mould of most conventional popular guitar sounds, whether in the field of jazz, Spanish, Brazilian, folk, felamenco, pop, rock classical or improvised music, Antonio Forcione draws on the full dynamic range of the instrument, using his entire body as a percussive tool. Dubbed the Jimi Hendrix of the acoustic guitar world, Antonio has recorded 16 albums and opened for Phil Collins, Bobby McFerrin and Jools Holland. 'Forcione is mesmerizing .. passion, grace and fire' (The Times).

Seckou Keita

Seckou Keita appearing at this event

A potent cocktail of spiritual Afro-Mandinka music with a twist of jazz composed by a Sekou Keita, a griot and international Kora player with a fantastic musical family pedigree. Respecting a musical tradition that stretches back to the 13th Century and the Mandinka Empire of West Africa, Seckou is an established contemporary master of the Kora, the 21-stringed African harp. With his feet firmly rooted in the 21st century and the identity of his heritage clear, Seckou is keen to experiment and develop fresh ideas. '... an inspired exponent of the Kora' (The Guardian).
