Catrin Finch & Seckou Keita
This sublime, critically acclaimed and multi award-winning collaboration between two adventurous virtuoso musicians – Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and Senegalese kora maestro 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 extraordinary performances, winning Best Group at the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
